FONTODI 2011 FLACCIANELLO

#14 WINE SPECTATOR TOP 100 2014
WINE SPECTATOR 95 POINTS - "Beautiful deep ruby with incredible richness in aroma—blackberry, blueberry and plum—tempered by sweet spice from the oak. This offers mouth filling lushness, intense fruit, terrific balance and harmony, with a long, complex finish.—Non-blind Flaccianello vertical (July 2014). Best from 2017 through 2032. 4,000 cases made."

Tenuta Fontodi is Chianti’s class act. Renowned for its Super Tuscan Flaccianello and the Sangiovese-Cabernet Sauvignon favorite Vigna del Sorbo, the estate’s Chianti Classico is unflinchingly reliable. Winemaking in the timeless land of Chianti Classico dates back to the 8th century, and the term “Chianti” was applied to wine as far back as 1398, and the wholly organic Tenuta Fontodi is one of many existing estates that can trace their lineage back to these historic times. Flaccianello is one of the first mono-varietal Sangiovese Super Tuscans-- it began as a cru of grapes from the vineyard of the same name, the “Flaccianello della Pieve”; in 2001, however, Fontodi widened Flaccianello’s base to source from the estate’s best grapes. This big red wine, born in 1981, combines all the old-world characteristics of Sangiovese with modern vinification techniques. Fontodi is an all-time favorite of both Hi-Time staff and customers.
