Fontodi 'Flaccianello della Pieve'
Flaccianello is made from a selection of the best grapes from the best parts of the Fontodi vineyards in the Conca di Oro, at the heart of Chianti Classico. 'Galestro' soils are perfect for Sangiovese and produce an intense, yet approachable wine. This Sangiovese is bright, ruby red in colour. The bouquet opens with ripe dark cherries, violets and plums, complemented by a hint of spice. This wine has wonderful structure and the palate is typically rich and full complemented by racy acidity and characteristically fine, supple tannins. The finish is flavourful and persistent. Multiple 100 point scores, including from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
