Whoa mama! This is the real deal! Deep red in the glass, wonderful nose of Sangiovese. solid entry, loooong on the palate; nice finish. 13.5% alc/vol. Can't find the receipt from Costco, will keep looking, suspect $12-$15 range. With salami pizza. Will buy more, regardless of price.

Guessed right on the price range - purchased two months ago for $13.59.

Had this dude's big bro last night, the 2007 Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva. Fan-tastic! Still young, needing another year or two in bottle, but a rounder, fuller version of the '08 CC. 13.5% alc/vol and about $19. Buy, buy, buy!
