Chianti Classico Fontodi 2015 (1.5L)
91 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate: "This is a great vintage for Sangiovese, and Fontodi embraces this fact with exuberance and enthusiasm. The 2015 Chianti Classico offers tight and precise fruit characteristics with crisp forest berry, cassis and dried blueberry. The wine is profoundly steady and straight with absolutely no rough edges. This is a lean to mid-weight red with balanced acidity tucked in on the finish. Some 200,000 bottles were produced." 10/18
93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Chianti Classico is outrageously beautiful. Rich and seductive, the 2015 expresses the radiance of the year while retaining a good bit of translucence and energy. Rose petal, mint, white pepper and crushed flowers add elements of brightness to this classy, super-polished Chianti Classico. More than anything else, though, I am simply blown away by the wine's quality. A decade ago, Giovanni Manetti made darker more concentrated wines. Today, the Fontodi wines speak to finesse. The Chianti Classico is a great place to see that. It was aged in equal parts cask and neutral barrique." 2/19.
95 Points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "The purity of fruit here really makes an impression on you. The nose shines with freshly picked blackcurrants, dark plums, freshly cut herbs, cinnamon, raspberry cheesecake, glazed cherries, orange and lemon rind. The palate is so well-crafted with a silky ball of tannins surrounded by layers of blue and red fruit and enveloping acidity. A long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now or hold." 9/18
93 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "Rich, packed with cherry, leather, dark chocolate and wild herb aromas and flavors. Dense and vibrant, with a long, mouthwatering finish that picks up a graphite edge." 6/18
93 Points, Andy Howard, Wine Enthusiast: "100% Sangiovese, fermented in stainless steel and matured for 24 months in French oak barriques. This is one of Tuscany's under-the-radar wines, as Giovanni Manetti treats this classico as a riserva in all but name. A cool, elegant, built-to-last style, which has all the hallmarks of great claret. Drinking Window 2019 - 2027." 2/19
