2009 - Ampeleia Ampeleia Toscana
"The 2009 Ampeleia is the most striking wine I have ever tasted from Ampeleia. A blast of rich, dark fruit hits the palate, followed by exotic espresso, sage and sweet spices. There is a wild, unrestrained quality to the 2009 that separates it from most wines being made on the Tuscan coast today. Layers of fruit build to the rich, voluminous finish. This is a fabulous effort. Ampeleia is 60% Cabernet Franc and 15% Sangiovese, plus an assortment of other red grapes grown on the property. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021."
"I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted from Ampeleia this year. Every time I went back to the wines, I found a new shade of dimension. A gradual conversion to biodynamic farming and an increased use of cement vats are stripping these wines to the bare essentials, and what comes through more often than not these days is pure class." (06/12) - 94 Pts Antonio Galloni - The Wine Advocate
"Deep, opaque ruby-red. Aromas of red berries, herbs, cocoa powder and brown spices. Silky on entry, then sweet and superconcentrated in the middle, spreading out to saturate the palate with dark berry, herb and mocha flavors. The ripe tannins are already in perfect harmony with the wine's fruit. A wine of great energy and clarity, and a very impressive vintage for Ampeleia." (09/12) - 94 Pts Ian Dagata - International Wine Cellar
"The vineyard is a unique examination of terroir, with three distinct levels, each with its own vegetation and microclimate. Ampeleia is undoubtedly a story about terroir, but it is also a story about friendship and collaboration. Elisabetta, her two friends Giovanni and Thomas, acquired this vineyard together, progressively transforming an idea into present day reality. Their main goal was to make the most of this rocky mountain terroir of Roccatederigh. Ampeleia wines strive to achieve balance and elegance through blends that have more resonance together than if they were apart." - Winery
2009 - Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva
"Blueberry and fresh mushrooms with hints of flowers on the nose. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful finish. This is a joy to taste. Drink now." (10/12) - 94 Pts James Suckling - JamesSuckling.com
"Fattoria Viticcio's Chianti Classico Riserva is the result of careful selection of the finest grapes during harvesting, with a predominance of Tuscan Sangiovese. Vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats with a long maceration period. Rapid warming of the cellar at the end of the primary fermentation phase enables the swift onset of malolactic fermentation. Depending on the vintage, the wine is aged - in varying proportions and periods of time - in both medium-sized oak barrels and small oak barriques, in order to enhance the aromas to the full. The wine is then aged in horizontally-stored bottles and in temperature-controlled cellars for a minimum of 6 months."
"The grapes are 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot. Fermentation and maceration take place in stainless steel tanks for a period of about 30 days at a controlled temperature of about di 28 degrees C, followed by natural malolactic fermentation in barriques of French and American oak, with no specific yeasts added. For aging, the wine spends 12 months in barriques made of French and American oak, and bottle ageing for a minimum of 6 months. The aroma is of soft fruits, currants, black cherry, spicy notes. The attack on the palate is firm, very full, red fruit and spices with dense and even tannins that allow a smooth and balanced finish. The wine is great for first courses with meat sauces, roasted or grilled meats." - Winery
