TASTING NOTES:

"I'm hardly surprised to report that Fontodi's 2015 Flaccianello della Pieve is one of the best wines recorded in this report of new releases from Tuscany. This wine sits as tall and as proud as the Colosseum in Rome or the Pyramids of Giza in its undeniable glory and beauty. It would be impossible to exaggerate its many lasting attributes and qualities. Perhaps the most remarkable is the smooth and seamless nature of its many complicated moving parts. It produces abundant power, intensity and elegance as if this were the easiest accomplishment in the world. But we all know that's far from the truth. Despite the heat of the vintage, this wine is constructed with firm building blocks as if it were from a cooler year. That's the Panzano magic in a nutshell. This vintage is very young and tight, and you need to exercise patience to allow it enough time to evolve." -ML Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Oct 31, 2018

TASTING NOTES:

"This is another fabulous – and completely out-of-the-box – wine from Tuscany's Fontodi. The 2014 Pinot Nero Case Via is absolutely characteristic of the variety with raspberry, violets and bitter almond. The mouthfeel is silky and polished with refined tannins and lingering freshness. Its hard-body texture is lean and firm. Only 4,000 bottles are produced." -Monica Larner, Dec 30th, 2016

Bot syrah hr

2015 Case Via Syrah

PRODUCT NUMBER: 207795

CASE CONFIGURATION: 6 x 750 ml

LISTING:  WHOLESALE

VARIETAL: Syrah

REGION/APPELATION: Colli Toscana Centrale, Tuscany, Italy

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.0%

TASTING NOTES:

"Syrah is the first red variety to be harvested each year at Fontodi. The 2015 Syrah Case Via opens to an inky dark appearance with purplish and blackish hues. This is a gutsy and savory wine that offers a swift kick of aromatic intensity. Dried blackberry, plum, spice, leather and bitter chocolate peel back in thick layers. Yet, despite the heat of the vintage, you might mistake this wine as being from a cooler growing season. The fruit is tight and focused. The finish offers bright acidity that is not common to Syrah from other parts of the wine world. Those cool Panzano nighttime temperatures and higher altitudes have left their mark here. Give this wine an extra year of bottle aging to allow it to flesh out further. Only 5,500 bottles were produced." - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate #239, October 2018

Bright and clear with lemon yellow hues. The vibrant perfumes are fresh and grassy, leading to lively, lifted palate with a mineral undertone.

TASTING NOTES:

"I tasted this wine as a preview about eight months ago, and it has fleshed out considerably since then. The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo impresses for the depth and the intensity of the fruit. The bouquet is shapely and round with dark cherry nuances, blackberry, grilled herb and sweet spice. You also get a lingering moment of strong firmness and power on the close. This wine does the vintage proud." - Monica Larmer, Oct 2017 - Wine Advocate

CASE CONFIGURATION: 6 x 750 ml

LISTING:  WHOLESALE

VARIETAL: 100% Sangiovese

REGION/APPELATION: Colli Toscana Centrale IGT

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.0%

TASTING NOTES:

"The 2014 Flaccianello della Pieve will probably drink well a bit earlier than the Vigna del Sorbo, as it has more mid palate creaminess, softer contours and a slightly more immediate personality. Even so , the translucent finesse of the vintage is very much in evidence. A rush of black cherry, plum, tobacco, liquorice, chocolate and spice infuses the sweet creamy finish. The 2014 spent 18 months in oak (less than was once the norm), 80% of it new." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2018

REGION/APPELATION: Chianti Classico DOCG, Tuscany, Italy

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.0%

TASTING NOTES:

"A sleek, black cherry– and blackberry-infused red, coupled with a steely, vibrant structure. Linear and tense, featuring an energetic finish. Tobacco, graphite and macchia notes add depth as this unwinds on the long finish. Best from 2022 through 2045.” - Wine Spectator, October 2019

"Fontodi's 2016 Chianti Classico is an expertly administered and measured wine that shows bright fruit intensity backed by Sangiovese's characteristic acidity, primary freshness and integrated structure. This wine is perfectly engineered to pair with Tuscan dishes such as pappardelle ribbon pasta with rabbit or wild boar ragù. The wine will not only cleanse the palate from those flavors, but it will enhance the savory flavors." -ML Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 31st July 2109

PRODUCT NUMBER: 192347

CASE CONFIGURATION: 6 x 750 ml

LISTING:  WHOLESALE

VARIETAL: Sangiovese

REGION/APPELATION: Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.0%

TASTING NOTES:

What a nose of clay, earth, crushed stones, rose petals, red licorice, baking spices, tar and Chinese spices. The level of sophistication to the red-fruited core, laser-sharp acidity and polished tannins, which grip and caress the palate, make this the greatest Chianti Classico ever made by Fontodi. From organically grown grapes. A long, long finish. Drink in 2022. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com Sept 11, 2018

"The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo (100% Sangiovese) is a wine that inspires a deep, deep breath into your glass. First, the wine shows a beautiful appearance that is thick and dark but allows for just enough ambient light to make it shine with ruby rays from deep inside. Then you have the bouquet that presents a solid wall of interwoven and ultimately beautifully balanced aromas. There is dark fruit, tobacco, leather, spice and polished river stone. Lastly, the mouthfeel reveals a similar level of extreme flavor equilibrium with very fine but still very young tannins. That mid-weight structure, matched to the wine's natural acidity, is a major guarantee of longevity. " - ML Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Oct 2018
