2006 Fontodi - Flaccianello Della Pieve Sangiovese - Italy - Tuscany - Other - Red

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. The wines are studies in the profound elegance and muted power of... More »

Issue Issue 151

(100% sangiovese; 15% alcohol) Good full ruby-red. Initially reticent nose hints at flint and herbs, then becomes sweeter with air, displaying ripe red cherry and dark plum aromas. Dense, pure and rich on entry, with highly focused, very pure flavors of minerals, red cherry, dark plum and black pepper. Finishes very long, with bright acidity giving this the wine a slightly austere quality. A very impressive sangiovese that offers a gorgeous seamless quality and huge depth. You'll be enjoying this for another 25 years easily. (Vinifera Imports, Ronkonkoma, NY)

The 2006 Flaccianello della Pieve is monumental, as it has been since the very beginning. Smoke, black cherries, plums, incense, licorice and tar are some of the many notes that burst from the glass in this powerful wine. The 2006 has fruit and structure to burn. It is going to be an absolutely fabulous wine to follow over the coming years, but patience is key. A huge, explosive finish rounds things out in style.

Shows excellent color and richness for a Sangiovese, with aromas of sultana, coffee, toasty oak and vanilla bean. Full-bodied, with masses of fruit and chewy tannins. The concentration and depth of fruit and layers of tannins are breathtaking. A blockbuster.

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.
