100% Sangiovese Tea and tobacco emerge on the nose followed by extracted, heavy carob laced aromas of roasted fruit. Big, powerful, and inelegant in the mouth, this is all chunky and showing rich, roasted fruit with harsh tannins. Raw, unbalanced and surprisingly bad. tasted twice with similar results. 70pts

The nose showed cherry sauce with Tuscan dust, spicy notes, hints of mushroom and citrus. On the palate, it was focused with refined red fruits and inner floral notes. The finish was clean with pure red fruits and hints of structure. This was easily one of the best entry-level Chianti I’ve tasted this year.

From 1.5 L, popped and poured. Marked notes of fennel & anise on top of fine, dried black cherry, underbrush, and a subtle richness at the core. Elegant, but not at all thin. Medium weight on the palate with more dried black cherry, leather, and some minerality. Fine tannins and savory notes on the finish. Well balanced, solid, and easy to drink. 90 Pts.

Dark fruits of plum and maybe some black cherries, laced with energetic acidity, fine grained tannins on the finish. A well balanced and delicious new world style classico that's easy going, but with finesse, and integrity. At around $25, i'll look to buy this in bulk.

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.
