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! *****♥

The Berardenga district is located just southeast of the Chianti Classico area. This is 100% Sangiovese made from 35 year old vines. Full of fresh dark, dusty-berried fruits on the palate. There's a nice freshness wrapped up in a classic, solid, medium-bodied red wine.

Delicious Chianti Classico from one of Tuscany's top estates. Packed with ripe red berry fruit and displaying Felsina's typical finesse, this is a truly memorable bottle.

The 2007 Chianti Classico is a sweet, super-ripe wine with an enticing core of fruit. The heat of the vintage has filled out the wine nicely. Although the acidity is still relatively high, this doesn't look to be an especially long-lived wine. That should hardly matter, though, as readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem. In 2007 the Chianti Classico is a selection of fruit from eleven different vineyards harvested between the end of September and early October. The wine was mostly aged in cask, with about 10% seeing smaller neutral French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015. Shows complex aromas of blackberry, flowers and hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a round, chewy finish. Falls a little short now. Needs time to open. Best after 2009. 16,600 cases made. -JS ** Only 1 in Stock **

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

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. It's 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 estate's cellar two years ago. I'd wait a good five years on this one, then enjoy it for another two decades. Proof positive that sangiovese is one of the world's great grape varieties

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.
