Rodano Chianti Classico Vigna Viacosta 2016

Product description
Fattoria di Rodáno is a top source for classically made, user-friendly and complex Chianti. Located in Castellina in the heart of the Chianti Classico district, the estate dates back as a wine-producing property to the sixteenth century. Rodáno has belonged to the Pozzesi family since that time. Vittorio Pozzesi had been in charge of the estate since they first began to bottle wine in 1967, but now his son, Enrico, handles the winery management. The domain's former winemaker was Giulio Gambelli, who passed away in 2012. Gambelli was one of the most legendary winemakers in Chianti, consulting for such estates as Montevertine and Gianfranco Soldera. Rodáno is quite a large estate, with over a hundred hectares under vine, and is one of the best-kept secrets in Tuscany.

This red combines its black cherry and black currant fruit with savoury notes of wild rosemary and menthol. It's sleek and well structured, with a long, mouthwatering, iron-tinged finish.
