    Medium ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of cassis, black cherry, tobacco and woodsmoke. Penetrating, pungent flavors of cassis and blackberry; dense and delineated. Already offers lovely inner-mouth perfume. Finishes with substantial but supple tannins. A very strong effort for the year. (Vinifera Imports)

    The dark ruby-colored 1996 Flaccianello is made in a hard, structured style. It possesses tough tannin, impressive structure, and a medium-bodied finish. Drink it over the next 5-8 years.

  • 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 the ancient Sangiovese grape. The "Flaccianello" is one of the original Super Tuscans (originated in 1981) that uses 100% Sangiovese from an eponymous single vineyard of superior quality. This is an incredible collectible that represents a seamless juxtaposition of traditional Tuscan flavor and New World richness.
