Chianti Classico Fontodi 2012 (92VM) (750ML)
90 WA
"The 2012 Chianti Classico is round, sweet and super-expressive. Dark red cherry, spice and tobacco meld together as this silky, open-knit Chianti Classico shows off its inviting personality. Succulent and racy to the core, the 2012 will drink well pretty much upon release. This is another fabulous showing from Fontodi...92" Antonio Galloni, Vinous 09/15 "Very attractive strawberry aromas with hints of lemon rind and cherry. Full body, firm tannins, and a tangy finish. A wine with very pretty tension and clarity. A standard-bearer...92" JS 10/15 "The vintage was hot and dry, but there was a big drop in temperatures right before the harvest that resulted in more noticeable acidity and less fruity intensity in terms of the bouquet. In fact, there is a noticeable crunchiness to the tannins and the wine offers flavors of wild berry, cassis and mild spice. Despite the difficult vintage, this wine bears all the hallmarks of Fontodi's winemaking excellence...90" WA 10/15
