If you're a Chianti fan like I am, this is a do not miss wine.
Castello Vicchiomaggio is a part of Tuscan history, even if that is a place that these days more often serves as a film backdrop or wedding venue than as the beating heart of a great wine estate. But they’ve always had the money to do really good wine, and indeed they have done that at times. It’s just that you have to stay on top of what they are doing if you want to get that really good wine. From the late 1990s a new family took over this nearly millennia old estate, and they want to be taken seriously – this wine is a good start; they would argue that they started moving towards excellence as soon as they took over. They may be right; nothing in wine is fixed: the great have their off vintages. The decent producers can suddenly do excellent wine. That’s our job: find them.
Agostino Petri Chianti Classico is Vicchiomaggio with a Riserva designation, Sangiovese with a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon, and from a single, great vineyard. This wine is aged in the used La Prima barrels, and then aged in larger format barrels for another half year or so. This is the Italian way and these both reflect that heritage. But they also reflect how much Italy has changed in the last twenty years and how modern and exciting the wines have become.
So.......full bodied Chianti Classico Riserva for less than $20 from an epic producer? Yes, please!
