The best Chiantis come from the original Classico district, the source of this cherry-inflected riserva.
What You Need To Know
Following a successful career as an engineer for cement factories in Argentina, Fattoria Vitticio’s Lucio Landini returned to Italy with his family in the 1960s and spent his life savings buying this Greve estate. Viticcio found its place among Chianti Classico’s leading wineries in the past decade under son Alessandro, whose rigor (strict crop yields, organic farming) and pursuit of quality (e.g., hiring prominent consultant Gabriella Tani) has paid dividends. The estate’s cherrydriven riserva is a step up from its basic Chianti; it gets a cedary note from aging in a combination of small, French oak barrels and traditional, larger botti.
