RATINGS: 91pts James Suckling

The making of wine on the land surrounding Vicchiomaggio is an ancient tradition and the present estate owners, John and Paola, are very keen on preserving it. Various winemaking processes are undertaken at Vicchiomaggio, from the traditional to the most innovative ones, and they are all closely supervised by John and Paola. To obtain high quality wines, all the vineyards are strictly classified according to typology and exposure and each wine is labelled after the name of its original vineyard.

Grape blend: 90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo, 5% Colorino Description: kept in large barrels that guarantee a very classical style. The blend of traditional grapes gives this well structured and fruity wine a very seductive colour. This wine is generally available 12 24 months after vintage, when these peculiar features are appreciated most. It is named after an antique farmhouse located on the wine estate.

Tasting Notes: James Suckling 91 points- Aromas of rose petal, berry and sandalwood follow through to a medium body, light tannins and a fresh and fruity finish. Lovely easy Chianti Classico. Drink now..August/2016
