Chianti Classico Fontodi 2016 (750ML)

Add to Favorites



94 ZBT: " I have been buyinga nd tasting the wines of Giovanni Manetti for 25+ years. His Chianti Classico is always one of my favorite because it is about as serious as Chianti Clkassico can get. His 2016's are off-the-chart good. First whiff from the glass exudes power and precision of fruit. You can smell the tannin of the vintage.....WOW! Has great palate presence as it completes a wide swath across your tongue with a savory cleansing style that keeps you coming back for more. Best ever!!" Andrew McMurray

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 ragu. The wine will not only cleanse the palate from those flavors, but it will enhance the savory flavors." 7/31/19

Antonio Galloni

94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous:"The 2016 Chianti Classico Fontodi brings together all the elements that make the Fontodi wines so unique, but with an extra kick of freshness and aromatic intensity that is the result of a year with notable diurnal shifts during the growing season. Dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice and menthol develop in the glass, but it is the wine's extraordinary balance and sheer appeal that stand out most. In time, 2016 may very well become the new benchmark for Fontodi's Chianti Classico. The 2016 is flat-out delicious. That's pretty much all there is to it." 8/19
