Fontodi Flaccionello 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

#8 of the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010 - "A generous Sangiovese, with loads of blackberry, dark cherry and berry on the nose and palate. Full and long. Chewy...the fruit is fabulous. Takes off on the finish...95." WS 10/10 "The 2006 Flaccianello della Pieve (Sangiovese) is just as phenomenal as it was when I tasted it from barrel. This spectacularly ripe and concentrated wine reveals masses of dark cherries, plums, licorice, smoke, violets, French oak and minerals that coat the palate with extraordinary richness. The wine possesses plenty of structure, but the sheer density of the fruit provides stunning balance. The 2006 Flaccianello is one of the more primary wines of the vintage, and it will require considerable patience. Flaccianello continues to prove that Panzano’s Conca d’Oro is one of the most privileged spots for Sangiovese in Tuscany...96" WA 05/10
