Fattoria Viticcio Chianti Classico 2006 Wine Review (NW)
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!
