2013 Fontodi Chianti Classico DOCG
Tenuta Fontodi is Chianti's class act. Renowned for its Super-Tuscan Flaccianello, 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.
Deep ruby red in color, with perfumes of sour cherry and plums with notes of leather and tobacco. Great depth of flavour, with juicy fruit and supple tannins, giving the wine a silky-smooth texture. This wine has a great structure and a fine mineral note on the finish.
JAMES SUCKLING - 94 Points
“A dense and velvety wine with black chocolate and cherry character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Altogether delicious. So well done and from organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.” (Aug 2016) www.jamessuckling.com
