    Winemaker's Notes:

    #13 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    A rich, brilliant ruby red. Good spice on the nose, with generous notes of tobacco and wet earth (and of dry earth as well). The palate is supported by a hefty charge of medium-smooth tannins to ensure the required lengthy ageing. Superb weight and structure, with a classic finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Chocolate, blackberry and black cherry aromas lead to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a deep concentration of fruit. Powerfully rich and polished. Big and structured. A blockbuster Sangiovese. Best after 2012. 3,300 cases made.

    The 2006 Fontalloro is much more sweet and open than the firmer Rancia. Enticing, expressive aromatics lead to an expansive core of fruit. Round, finessed tannins give the wine an additional level of polish. Today the Fontalloro is fleshier and more ready than the Rancia. There is superb purity to the fruit and wonderful overall balance. Tar, smoke, licorice, and grilled herbs come to life on the finish. Fontalloro is made from vineyards in both the Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi appellations. Simply put, this is a great, majestic Fontalloro. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.

    I've held this wine for approximately 2 1/2 years and was not disappointed when opened. The wine is tightly structured, requiring time to breathe before it gives up its secrets. Powerfully aromatic bouquet, dark red fruit well balanced with the tannins, and dark chocolate for a delightful finish. This wine has the structure for continued aging.
