Fontodi Chianti Classico DOCG 2014 (Tuscany, Italy) "...woodland berry, exotic spice, wild herb..."
Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico precisely in the valley which lies south of the town of Panzano and is called the “Conca d’Oro” (the golden shell) because of its amphitheatre shape. A genuine and characteristc “Terroir”, famous for centuries for its tradition of quality wine cultivation, thanks to a unique combination of high altitude, calcar clayschist soil, lots of light, and a fantastic micro-climate – warm and dry with a marked difference in day and night-time temperatures.
"Fontodi's 2014 Chianti Classico is one of the most finessed vintages of this wine in recent memory. The combination of the cool growing conditions and a move toward larger oak casks has resulted in a deep yet translucent wine of notable pedigree and class. There is plenty of the typical Panzano richness, but less of the overt weight that has characterized some recent vintages." - 92 Points, Vinous
"Made with organically grown Sangiovese, this elegantly structured red offers enticing aromas of woodland berry, exotic spice and wild herb. Vibrant and savory, the medium-bodied, youthfully austere palate boasts tart cherry, wild raspberry, clove and licorice supported by bright acidity and taut, refined tannins. It's already tempting but will be even better in a few years. Drink 2019–2026."- 92 Points, Wine Enthusiasts
