The Chianti Classico from Fontodi is a blend from different plots within the estate vineyards in the south-facing amphitheatre known as Conca d’Oro (= Golden shell). This Chianti shows great depth of flavour and a silky-smooth texture.
The wine is deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of sour cherry and plums leading to notes of leather and tobacco. It has great depth of flavour, with juicy fruit and supple tannins, giving way to a silky-smooth texture. It has a great structure and finishes with a fine mineral note.
Parker (91) The Fontodi 2017 Chianti Classico gives the impression of being slightly mature or advanced, even now straight out of the gate. The hot and dry vintage has shaped aromas of candied cherry, dried plum, rum raisin, white chocolate and a dusty note of wet chalk.
