The 2007 Fontalloro shows dark red fruits, leather and hot spices on the nose. The palate showed a firm structure with red fruits and earthy notes. The finish was long with floral berries and wood tones.

This 2007 Chianti Classico is a sweet, ripe wine with fruit highlights. The acidity is relatively high. According to reports, this selection has fruit from eleven different vineyards harvested between the end of September and early October. There is a hint of oak in the taste. I throughly enjoyed this wine.

Charming fresh red cherries and cassis fragrances intertwined with hints of cedar, sweet spices and undertones of balsamic. A very flavourful wine with a great balance ending on a smooth finish. Loved it! *****♥

Johannisbeeren, Kirschen, Vanille, voller Körper, reife, feine Tannine, langer, fruchtiger Abgang. In seiner Jugend eher verschlossen. Braucht viel Zeit, um seine Qualitäten und die Vielschichtigkeit seines Charakters voll auszudrücken.

(100% sangiovese; 14% alcohol) Good full red with a palish rim. Pure, superripe aromas of red cherry, violet, iodine and nutmeg. Superrich, highly concentrated and seamless, with densely packed flavors of raspberry, dark plum and marzipan. Finishes creamy-rich and explosively long, with a pretty violet note. This was so good I really had trouble letting the glass go. Its also the only time I can remember Fontalloro outclassing Rancia (of which I am a huge fan) by such a wide margin, something I had noticed even when tasting barrel samples of these two wines in the estates cellar two years ago. Id wait a good five years on this one, then enjoy it for another two decades. Proof positive that sangiovese is one of the worlds great grape varieties. The 2007 Fontalloro is round, sweet and inviting, very much in keeping with the style of the vintage. The fruit tends towards the redder end of the spectrum vis-a-vis the Rancia and the Fontalloro seems to possess a touch more freshness...

Der Chianti Annata zeichnet sich durch einen fruchtigen Geschmack, grosse Sauberkeit und Sortentypizität aus: eine meisterliche Komposition von Zwetschgen, Brombeeren, Cassis, Veilchen und Vanille.

There's blackberry and blueberry galore in this full-bodied wine, which has chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Juicy and wonderfully fruity. Best after 2011.
