Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2017

2017 Vintage. Great acidity, wonderful nose of dark cherry, plum and cassis. Tart in the beginning and a bit tannic. Opens fast and drinks well. Young, I would hold this for 5 more years. — 5 days ago

Filetta di Lamole Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2014

Dried herbs, old red cherry, cranberry acid. Very Brunello like. — 3 months ago

Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

Dramatically different from the 2017 Fontodi yesterday. Less aromatic, less bright, less cherry. This is thicker, smoother, earthier. More blackberry than red cherry. More woody. Tannins are very soft but very prominent in the flavor profile adding a bitterness. — 10 months ago

Vigna del Sorbo Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2018

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is quite possibly the most elegant, refined version of this wine I have ever tasted. It does not offer the immediacy or impact of either the 2015 or 2016, but, instead, impresses with its elegance, persistence and total class. Bright floral and spice notes add perfume to a core of red-toned fruit. The 2018 represents another move towards greater finesse at Fontodi. It spent a year in French oak barrel and a second year in cask. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2021)

Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2009

Tasty, but I would like it more if it didn’t have Cabernet Sauvignon in it and if they used less oak. Pretty rich and ripe. I prefer Felsina, Fontodi, Monsanto, Castell’in Villa, Rampolla, Isole e Olena and San Giusto a Rentennano to this! — 4 years ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2018

Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico. One of Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect mix of bright red fruit and earthiness found in the best red wines of Tuscany. This dry smooth velvety wine with hints of green olives mixed with black cherry delivers plenty of character. Great finish with a delicious tannin bite. An excellent wine for drinking today and setting several cases aside for future enjoyment. — 2 months ago

Meriggio Colli Toscana Centrale Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Amazing tropical notes. This wine had a full-blown, scandalous love affair with the fresh mint in our pasta dish. — 5 years ago
