Fontodi Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana IGT 2013
Antonio Galloni/Vinous – ‘The 2013 Flaccianello della Pieve is a powerhouse. In this vintage, Flaccianello has all of its typical richness but also a good deal of freshness that will help it age. Interestingly, the stylistic difference between Flaccianello and Vigna del Sorbo is more accentuated in 2013 than in 2012. Deep, layered and unctuous, the 2013 offers plenty of blue and purplish-hued fruits, clove, lavender and new leather nuances, all supported by big, searing tannins that will require the better part of a decade to settle down. The 2013 is a magnificent Flaccianello with a bright, bright future.’ 97+ Points – Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2013 Flaccianello della Pieve is a commanding wine and a strong protagonist of both the vintage and its territory. Connoisseurs of Sangiovese will be hard pressed to find a wine more authentic, elegant, complex and pristine than this. I am a huge fan of the 2013 vintage in Chianti Classico and the Flaccianello della Pieva is one big reason for this love affair. The bouquet is gorgeous and delineated with wild berry, tangy spice, crushed mineral and forest flower. Yet, the wine's color is dark, brooding and austere. The wine offers exuberance and energy in the mouth, thanks to its balanced acidity and seemingly never-ending finish. It should age forward for twenty years or more. Congratulations Fontodi.
