Wine Advocate

92+ Points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate: "Fontodi's 2016 Chianti Classico is an expertly administered and measured wine that shows bright fruit intensity backed by Sangiovese's characteristic acidity, primary freshness and integrated structure. This wine is perfectly engineered to pair with Tuscan dishes such as pappardelle ribbon pasta with rabbit or wild boar ragù. The wine will not only cleanse the palate from those flavors, but it will enhance the savory flavors." 7/31/19

Wine Spectator

94 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "A sleek, black cherry- and blackberry-infused red, coupled with a steely, vibrant structure. Linear and tense, featuring an energetic finish. Tobacco,graphite and macchia notes add depth as this unwinds on the long finish." 6/5/19


93 Points, Michaela Morris, Decanter: "Giovanni Manetti has been managing his family's property since 1979. From the start he has been pushing the quality of the region forward and, as the new President of the Chianti Classico consortium, he continues to do so. Though not claimed as such, Fontodi's annata could technically be a Riserva and the 2016 is particularly spectacular. Still nascent, it's stunningly fragrant with scents of smoke, anise, dark red cherry and violet. Ample yet graceful tannins cling to the palate with succulent fruit to balance. It remains light on its feet, with a lift of liquorice on the long finish." 2/19
