We have so little of this, I'm not going to say a lot about it. Just a no-brainer....FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED...very little to go around...

Dear Oenophile,

Tenuta Fontodi is Chianti's class act. Renowned for its Super Tuscan Flaccianello and the Sangiovese-Cabernet Sauvignon favorite Vigna del Sorbo, the estate’s Chianti Classico is unflinchingly reliable. Winemaking in the timeless land of Chianti Classico dates back to the 8th century, and the term “Chianti” was applied to wine as far back as 1398. The wholly organic Tenuta Fontodi is one of many existing estates that can trace their lineage back to these historic times.

2010 FONTODI FLACCIANELLO DELLA PIEVE  WA97, V96

BOTTLE -- $99
MAGNUM -- $239

WA97: "I remember the thrill this wine gave me when I tasted it upon release. The 2010 Flaccianello della Pieve is a spectacular effort that has only just started its evolutionary journey. This wine has a long, long way to go and I hope to be able to check on its progress with some degree of frequency. In fact, I`m moving the drinking window up by a few years to give it more breathing room. The wine opens to a rich and masculine appearance, and there are iron-like notes that seem specific to this vintage. More mineral and granite stone add great definition. At the core of this wine is a dark and savory serving of black cherry and spice that aspire to seamless integration. The tannins are still firmly on-guard, and this wine needs more time to complete its integration and start its elegant cellar evolution."

ARRIVES FALL. Please act quickly, we will sell out in a flash...!
