"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.

With these releases, Fattoria Rodáno opted to exclude two botti from the final blend of the base Chianti Classico. Those two oak casks (numbers 27 and 46) were bottled as separate wines instead. Both represent a blend of 90% Sangiovese with 10% Canaiolo and Colorino. Both were aged in those casks for 30 months. The wines are very similar, but they are not identical twins." (WA)
