FONTODI 2010 CHIANTI CLASSICO

Fontodi 2010 Chianti Classico is 93 points from Galloni. This is the highest rated ever straight Chianti Classico. This is the entry level wine that Fontodi makes, but this wine is by no means entry in quality and flavor. The wine is mode from 100% Sangiovese, and aged in new French barriques for 12 months. This wine is a steal for only a fraction of the cost of its big brothers the Fontodi Chianti Riserva Sorbo, and Fontodi Flaccianello.

The 2010 vintage in the Chianti Classico sub zone is one for the history books. The vintage was a long and cool growing season, which allowed the grapes to slowly develop and mature without losing balance. The rain that fell was almost always followed by a few weeks of sunny weather. This meant that the ground dried up, so the grapes wouldn't be diluted or have to worry about rot and mold. What this means for the grapes in the Chianti Classico zone is this. The wines developed amazing aromatics that liken to the 2004 vintage, have acid and structure (grape tannins) like 2006 vintage, with a slight bit a fruit like the 2007 vintage. For all people that love the classical vintages and styles, this is your vintage. However if you just love great wines to pop and drink this is also the vintage for you.
