This is a spectacular effort with a full and generous approach. The 2013 Chianti Classico Vigna Viacosta drinks beautifully, imparting elegant fruit and savory notes of tobacco and spice along the way. Candied cherry, moist earth and balsam herb add more dimension at the back. The finish is smooth, supple and long. Count on this wine to evolve slowly over the next ten years.
