FLACCIANELLO 2010 FONTODI

Fontodi 2010 Flaccianello is 96+ points from Galloni, and some are saying the greatest ever Fontodi Flaccianello. Previous scores topped 99 points from Wine Spectator for the 2006 vintage. The Flaccianello is 100% Sangiovese from the estates top vineyard blocks and only uses the best grapes even further. The wine is aged 24 months in new French barrique, which used to be 18 months up until 2006 vintage. This wine is amazing. It is among the top I.G.T wines in Tuscany, and one of the best 100% Sangiovese wines. For the price, it is amazing young right now and is a wine that can age for 20 years without missing a stride. The Fontodi Flaccianello has been consistently great for decades, and is even better from one of the greatest Tuscany vintage ever.

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.
