Fattoria Viticcio Chianti Classico 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Currants, cherry, plum sauce, and vanilla

Dense core of fruit on the palate

Racy finish of smoky notes, earth, black cherry, and cocoa

Give this wine plenty of air and let it warm up a bit- you won't be disappointed! Traditional Chianti elements are present, along with rich fruit and vanilla. What really carries this wine is the dense core of flavor that unfolds on the palate.

I bought one bottle for $20 and another for $16 a week later, so keep an eye open for a good deal. Pop the cork with your favorite Italian dish and raise a glass!

This past summer I found two bottles of 'Fattoria Viticcio Chianti Classico 1997 at a local shop. A great Chianti. I am now finding that the 2006 Tuscan wines are outstanding and will be stocking up.
