Best wine of the tasting. Rich and smooth with an extended finish. Lovely Sangiovese from the Chianti region - @ Fontodi Winery, Greve.

Classic Sangiovese orange peel aroma with intriguing secondary notes of seared plantains. Massive tannin composition that culminates with a distinct chalky finish. Overall, an aroma profile that was completely bananas left me longing for more from the flavors and composition that ensued. And yes, pun sincerely intended.

2009 Fontodi Flaccianello Della Pieve - Amazing 100% Sangiovese with gorgeous cherry and tobacco. So young, but so good.

Lovely nose of tobacco hint of chocolate and slight floral notes. Judy and full bodied. Nice acidity and backbone. Softening pleasantly after 90 minutes well done Still years to go on this but drinking well. #flaccianellodellapieve bravo!

Super tight still. Decanted the wine 4 hours for it to open. Tannins still stiff but the wine is a monster so much power and length...needs 5 more years at least
