Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Now with upwards of 15 years of perfect maturity, this ’00 Flaccianello is adding tertiary notes of worn saddle leather, cigar wrapper, truffles and a waft of game to its seductive aromatics of crushed flower petals, sweet baking spices, and juicy red fruit. This is a supple, elegant bottling that flows like silk across your palate, building to a lingering finish laden with chewy tannins and bright with acidity. Since 1981, when Fontodi began crafting this mono-varietal Sangiovese wine, Flaccianello has been a darling of connoisseurs and critics alike, yet this great Super Tuscan is best with maturity, a state that eludes most wine enthusiast. After temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel, this wine aged about 18 months in barrique, about half new.
