Winemaker 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

WS 95
Wine Spectator

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.

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

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.
