Professional Wine Reviews for Rodano Chianti Riserva Viacosta 2015

Rated 94 by Vinous Media
The 2015 Chianti Classico Viacosta speaks with authority and distinction. Unctuous and deep on the palate, the 2015 possesses tremendous textural depth while retaining its classic sense of structure. Macerated cherry, graphite, plum, spice, tobacco, licorice and cloves infuse this deep, virile Chianti Classico with tons of character. This muscular, potent Chianti Classico will drink well for many years to come.
Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
Reflective of the warm vintage, the 2015 Chianti Classico Vigna Viacosta (100% Sangiovese, aged in oak for 30 months) is another great edition of a beautiful wine from a promising producer located in Castellina in Chianti. The wine prizes girth and power with abundant dark fruit and black cherry at the core. It produces a soft, yielding texture that makes this vintage already accessible and ready to drink straight out of the gate. Some 25,000 bottles were produced.

Winery Rodano

Region: Tuscany

All over the stunning region of Tuscany in central Italy, you'll see rolling hills covered in green, healthy grapevines. This region is currently Italy's third largest producer of wines, but interestingly wineries here are generally happy with lower yields holding higher quality grapes, believing that they have a responsibility to uphold the excellent reputation of Tuscany, rather than let it slip into 'quantity over quality' wine-making as it did in the mid twentieth century. The region has a difficult soil type to work with, but the excellent climate and generations of expertise more than make up for this problem. Most commonly, Tuscan vintners grow Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes, although more and more varietals are being planted nowadays in order to produce other high quality wine styles.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
