2007 Fontodi Flaccianello

$ 110.00

We currently have 2 in stock.

Fontodi is one of Tuscany's great wine estates. It is located in a tiny town called Panzano in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. The vines are farmed organically and have been certified since 2008. As a general rule, the wines made here are superb, but often require aging to get there.

This vintage is on the verge of arriving and has huge aging potential. It is a guessing game, but it could handle 20 years without issue.

Consistently big scores:

We've singled out this review, because it says quite a lot:
The Wine Advocate - 95 points - "The 2007 Flaccianello della Pieve captures the essence of this great Tuscan vintage. It is a decidedly sexy, opulent wine bursting at the seams with rich red berries, mint and spices. The tannins are present but virtually undetectable under layer after layer of fruit. There is no question the 2007 is seamless, opulent and full-bodied. Readers who prefer more structured wines will gravitate to vintages such as 2001 and 2004. I find the 2007 utterly irresistible. It will also drink better earlier than some of the most classic vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. Rating 95+."
