Italy - Tuscany - Other

Red Sangiovese
Producer Notes

Located in the picturesque Florentine hillsides just outside the pastoral town of Panzano, Fontodi is the spectacular domain of the Manetti family. The vineyards are located in the valley of the Conca d'Oro (Golden Basin) and enjoy a cool climate and marl-rich soil that gives the fruit a signature high-toned, red cherry profile.

wonderful, although still ver y youthful. was much better after 1 hour of decanting and playing with it. Will become extremely subtler. Notes of red fruits and currants.

A big and bold sangiovese that could stand up to a big steak but is great with tomato based sauces as the acidit kicks in. Surprisigly powerful for its age but tAnnins are softening. Plenty of time left.

from the earth -- decanted 2 hours ahead and was perfect when poured. I may pull the 2nd bottle within 2010.

I tip my hat to you, Flaccianello, for the entire table was gasping for air as you were poured! Few wines exhibit such class and are endowed w/ such seamless finesse to charm the pants out of me this easily, but this wine nearly encapsulated what I believe the Tuscan soul is all about. The Lafite of Sangiovese was firing on all cylinders last night, showcasing loam, cured meat, peppercorns, cigar box, and the essence of blackberry in such an opulent but poised package. Profoundly constructed and wonderfully refined, a true benchmark for modern Sangiovese that nearly left me speechless.

Started off with very stinky nose of manure that took two days to blow off! Very intense flavor with cinnamon notes, finally came into its own after a couple of days. Seems like it could use much more time.

120 bottle vintage collection on sale!
I have some great bottles here.  Unfortunately I need the money.  So sad to see them go.  Hopefully someone will give them a good home.  Take a look. Give me an offer.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
