Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Fontodi is saying that its ’16 Chianti Classico drinks like a “baby Flaccianello,” and we have to agree: this wine reflects its banner vintage in its sheer finesse, its breathtaking balance between its juicy fruits and its savory earthiness, and its tensions between its copious dry extract and its keen acidity. Smokey minerals, warm earth, crushed violet petals, tobacco wrapper and licorice wrap the crisp red berries and lush blue fruits in this spellbinding Chianti Classico. Chewy tannins flesh out the wine’s silky, energetic palate, while satisfying savory notes anchor the lingering, complex and textured finish. An outstanding Chianti Classico, Fontodi’s 2016 will drink gorgeously out of the gate, but it has the stuffing to cellar for mid-term enjoyment. This mono-varietal Sangiovese derives from multiple vineyard sites; the grapes ferment for two weeks with natural yeasts in temperature-controlled tanks, and the wine ages in barrels for eighteen months before bottling.
