Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 1995 Flaccianello della Pieve wraps around the palate with layers of dark fruit deeply informed by the cold growing season and late harvest that year. The cold summer gave the wine its structure, while the fruit is clearly that of the Indian summer that followed. I especially like the way the wine continues to open up as it sits in the glass. This is a fabulous showing, not to mention a beautifully balanced wine.

Full ruby-red. Full-blown, perfumed aromas of cassis, cherry, tobacco, chocolate, sandalwood, smoke and earth. Supple, layered flavors of cassis, redcurrant, cherry, cedar, leather and tobacco; good sweetness and density. Finishes with dusty, even tannins.

Lots of oomph. A very dry end but lots of integrity.

Very nice sangiovese, but not extraordinary in any way. It may have been slightly past it speak

About This Producer


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.

At least 14 clones of Sangiovese exist which are grouped into the Sangiovese grosso and Sangiovese piccolo families.
