Flaccianello Della Pieve Tenuta Fontodi Panzano Tuscany 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Flaccianello (100% Sangiovese) is a pretty, perfumed effort. This<br/>restrained Flaccianello offers plenty of pure, vibrant fruit intermingled with<br/>red cherries, spices, smoke and sweet toasted oak. It possesses superb clarity<br/>and depth, with beautifully integrated tannins, although clearly it isn't made<br/>in the same style as the powerhouse 2004. Still, the wine shows notable class<br/>and elegance. <br/>Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate - June 2008
