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

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
