THE GLOBAL SOURCE OF FINE WINE AND SPIRITS
Fontodi produce Flaccianello from their best parcels of Sangiovese. Flaccianello 2004 might be one of the very best Chianti we have ever tried: complex and rich, with a lasting presence on the palate, and great depth.
However, we recently tried Flaccianello 1997 and think we have found the master of the 2004 Flaccianello... The wine is beautifully elegant; while the 2004 which is still a powerhouse and has many more years of aging, the 1997 is now at its peak, with a gorgeous finale of black cherries, balanced with underlying minerality in a velvety texture.
We suggest building a nice vertical of the property for your cellar...
