Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Fontodi’s Flaccianello is as elegant as it is powerful, and vice-versa. All of Sangiovese’s trademark raciness blends with wildflower aromatics and rests on a foundation of sun-warmed earth touched with silky tannins. Since 1981, when Fontodi began crafting this mono-varietal, Flaccianello has been a darling of connoisseurs and critics alike, yet rarely appear vintages like 2009, a harvest where estate owner Giovanni Manetti says he didn’t see a single flawed grape on the sorting table, a year that brings to mind the legendary 1997 and much-heralded 2006. A wine that takes its time, Flaccianello rewards the patient drinker with a pure, all-enveloping, Tuscan experience. It’s Sangiovese intensity at its elegant best.
