Winemaker's Notes:

Sangiovese: "The estate�s 2004 Chianti Classico shows the pedigree of its superior vintage. A dark ruby, it offers gorgeous aromatics along with plenty of clean, vibrant red cherry fruit and an almost weightless, super-elegant personality. It is not to be missed." RP

Really dark in the glass, this Chianti was made to be drunk young quickly giving up beautiful cherry notes, the wine is mid bodied and opulent, no aggression here, finely weighted tannins, and a fruity mid finish. It's not half bad for the price and is a typical Fontodi Classico that got a leg up from a beaut of a vintage.
