Tasting Notes

The 2017 Flaccianello della Pieve is fabulous. Dark, sensual and enveloping, the 2017 captures the essence of the house style in its textural richness and baritone inflections. Black cherry, plum, spice, new leather, licorice and chocolate infuse the 2017 with tremendous richness. The 2017 spent 18 months in barrique followed by 6 months in cask, the same aging regime as the Vigna del Sorbo, but with a bit more new oak. That approach worked very well, as the Flaccianello stands out for its exceptional textural elegance and finesse. It is a positively stellar wine. Drink 2025-2042. 97 Points. - Antonio Galloni

Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico precisely in the valley which lies south of the town of Panzano and is called the 'Conca d'Oro " (the golden shell) because of its amphitheatre shape. A genuine and characteristc 'Terroir ", famous for centuries for its tradition of quality wine cultivation, thanks to a unique combination of high altitude, calcar clayschist soil, lots of light, and a fantastic micro-climate ‚– warm and dry with a marked difference in day and night-time temperatures. - Importer Note
