Fontodi, Chianti Classico 2019

Fontodi

Case Format: 6x75cl

The wine is deep ruby red in colour. On the nose, it has aromas of sour cherry and plums leading to notes of leather and tobacco. On the palate, 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. As with many true fine wines they are “made” in the vineyard – and Fontodi’s 70 hectares are situated in the prime sub district of Panzano, which the locals refer to as the conca d’oro – or “golden shell” due to the near perfect marriage between aspect, topography and soil.

Walter Speller

Panzano. 100% Sangiovese. Certified organic. Lustrous deep ruby. Bright sour-cherry nose with savoury, minerally notes and what smells like a note of oak. Fantastic balance between succulent fruit, lots of juicy acidity and gripping but ripe tannins. Tactile fireworks. (WS)

Monica Larner

Offering a clear snapshot of the vintage, the 2019 Chianti Classico draws its organic fruit only from Panzano from estate vineyards and a few leased parcels in the Conca dOro. The bouquet opens to fresh cherry, bright rose and other floral nuances. The mineral signature in this wine is strong and serves to give focus and linearity. It offers good flavor intensity to the palate, with elegant tannins to finish.
