Fontodi, Flaccianello della Pieve 2014

£69.99

Flaccianello della Pieve is Fontodi's top wine. Despite being 100% Sangiovese and from Tuscany this is not a Chianti. It is from the IGT of Collie Toscana Centrale - ie the central hills of Tuscany. It is a wine of magnificent structure and depth.

It is also a wine made in small quantities of just 5,000 cases/year. However due to challenging conditions in 2014 around half of this was produced. This drop in production ensured that only the best grapes were vinified and therefore the wine is as good as ever. 

This is a deep and complex wine with beautiful dark berry and red fruit notes, plenty of leather and tobacco and a very long finish.

James Suckling gives this 97/100:

"Very precise and focused with blueberry, blackberry and currant character. Chewy yet tight tannins. Full body and fabulous density and length. A classic. Needs five or six years to open completely but so beautiful in its youth. Real deal. From organically grown grapes. Pure sangiovese."
