More Vintages and Sizes of Fontodi - Flaccianello Della Pieve:
Author: Antonio Galloni
The 2008 Flaccianello della Pieve is quite pretty, even if it is a bit buttoned up. It possesses lovely perfume and sweet Pinot-like fruit backed by acidity and structure that are unquestionably those of Sangiovese. Today the 2008 impresses for its energy and verve. It should be a fabulous wine to drink in another few years, once the tannins settle down a bit. This is yet another 2008 that has grown considerably in stature over the last year.

The raspberry, cherry, floral and spice aromas and flavors in this classy red show harmony even at this early stage. Fresh and focused, with a vibrant finish. Sweet fruit, mineral and spice notes resonate on the aftertaste. Sangiovese. 4,000 cases made.

The pureness of fruit is so intense here. It's also so clean and beautiful. The wine shows fabulous aromas of flowers, blueberries, and raspberries. It's full-bodied, with chocolate, licorice, and plums. The texture is very velvety. This is a wine in near perfect proportions.
