Fontodi Flaccianello 2009
Fontodi Flaccianello 2009 750ml
In Stock
Price: $154.99

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. more info
Fontodi Flaccianello 2008
Fontodi Flaccianello 2008 750ml
In Stock
Price: $164.99

Fontodi Flaccianello, the Super Tuscan that drinks like a Brunello, is one of the most important mono-varietal Sangiovese Super-Tuscan wines, right up there with Montevertine Le Pergole Torte, and we’re offering this icon with impeccable provenance at some of the best pricing in the country. As elegant as it is powerful, the ’08 Flaccianello is unmistakably intense, unquestionably elegant, a tad restrained, yet none the less approachable. The ’08 Flaccianello showcases the brambly fruit of its Sangiovese grape, whose telltale acidic zing is tempered by a touch of toasted vanilla and wildflower aromatics. Cellar for a few years and drink for the next decade or two. more info
Querciabella Camartina 2010 1.5L
Querciabella Camartina 2010 1.5L
In Stock
Price: $249.99
Special Price: $174.99

Precise and layered, the 2010 Camartina personifies elegance, and with about a decade of age, it’s just entering its drinking window. Super-ripe red and black fruits leap from the glass, joined by balsamic herbs, rain-spattered wildflowers, worn leather, warm pipe tobacco and spices. Juicy and succulent, this wine wraps its fruits around a serious mineral spine, while fine-grained tannins meld seamlessly with electric acidity--this wine has the balance and the structure for the long haul! A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese grown in clayey, mineral-rich vineyards, grape varietals ferment separately with indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel; after blending, the wine ages for about 18 months in barrique before bottling without fining or filtration. Camartina is a completely biodynamic, vegan, natural wine that glows with the warmth of its Greve terroir. more info

Tenuta Fontodi is Chianti's class act: The winery's renowned crus are Flaccianello and Vigna del Sorbo, and the Chianti Classico is unflinchingly reliable. Tenuta Fontodi is one of many existing estates that can trace their lineage back to these historic times. Fontodi is an all-time favorite of IWM and any Tuscan wine enthusiast.

In the 17 published editions of Gambero Rosso, Italy’s acclaimed wine rating guide, this Tuscan estate has won the coveted Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) award 13 times. And like the other greats of Chianti Classico (Felsina, Querciabella, Castell'in Villa...), they did it by revealing the true essence of the Sangiovese grape and the local terroir. They maintain tradition even when updating equipment; in fact, the new cantina works entirely on the gravity principle (no pumps) though it is fitted with the latest vinification technology.

Resting near Panzano in the epicenter of Toscana's viticulture, Fontodi's vines enjoy a southern aspect, a position in a natural amphitheatre, and marl soil. These optimum conditions allow the grapes to ripen perfectly, therefore creating wines of great character and structure. The natural potential of the grapes combined with the leadership of Marco and Giovanni Manetti (cousins who are sons of the 1968 visionaries) makes for perfection in winemaking. The estate dates back to the 16th century, but her modern era started in 1968 when the Manettis, a Florentine family famous for more than three centuries for their terracotta production, purchased the estate.

One of the first 100% Sangiovese Super Tuscans, Fontodi's Flaccianello is a cru of grapes from the vineyard of the same name, the "Flaccianello della Pieve." This big red wine, which was born in 1981, combines all the old-world characteristics of Sangiovese with modern vinification techniques. While the Flaccianello went on to achieve her "super" status, the cru Vigna del Sorbo became one of the first Sangiovese-Cabernet Sauvignon blends: the latter is actually classified as a DOCG wine, though, and the former an IGT. The grapes are primarily Sangiovese (with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon) and come from the Vigna del Sorbo vineyard. In the nineties, driven to improve quality even further, Manetti phased out his Chianti Classico Riserva label to focus on his Chianti Classico, a wine aged in botti (large barrels) that serves as a fine benchmark for a traditional wine.
