Flaccianello Della Pieve 1997 : Magnificent

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...
