Notes from the winemaker:

Midway between the cities of Florence and Sienna, in the heart of Chianti Classico region. The history of Viticcio is actually the history of the Landini family which, in the early 1960s, became the owner of the winery. The founder, Lucio Landini, an engineer, was also a man deeply attached to Tuscan tradition, the Chianti soil and its products. From modest beginnings the focus remains the same today - the production of high quality wines worthy of an expert international clientele.Viticcio in now owned and managed by Alessandro Landini who, by following in his father's footsteps, is the epitome of a new class of wine entrepreneurs.In addition, the winery has been renovated to include the most modern, cutting-edge technology.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points -
Wine Spectator Magazine:
"There's a lot of Cabernet character on the nose and palate, with dried herbs and black currant. Full and very rich on the palate, with chewy yet fruit-coated tannins. Long and flavorful. Needs a little time to come together. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2009. 2,500 cases made." –JS (10/31/09)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Readers looking for an affordable every-day wine from Tuscany will want to check out Viticcio’s 2007 Bere. This blend of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot bursts onto the palate with generous, vinous red fruit. The wine reveals lovely density and inner perfume in a soft, accessible style that is sure to find many admirers. It is a great choice for casual drinking over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012." -Antonio Galloni (08/2009)
