The Chianti Classico from Fontodi is a blend from different plots within the estate vineyards in the south-facing amphitheatre known as Conca d’Oro (= Golden shell). This Chianti shows great depth of flavour and a silky-smooth texture. The wine is deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of sour cherry and plums leading to notes of leather and tobacco. It has great depth of flavour, with juicy fruit and supple tannins, giving way to a silky-smooth texture. It has a great structure and finishes with a fine mineral note. THE WINE ADVOCATE - 92+ points - Drink Date: 2019 - 2030 - "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 savoury flavours." ORGANIC.
