Fontodi Flaccianello 2019
Flaccianello derives from the best Sangiovese grown in the estate’s best vineyards, making it an outstanding expression of its vintage. Reflecting its unusual, slow-ripening 2019 vintage, the polished 2019 Flaccianello owns its age-worthy structure, quiet intensity, and stunning complexity. Crisp red berries, succulent cherries, and brambly blackberries dance on a bed of warm earth, Mediterranean scrub, cigar wrapper, and sweet spices in this radiant Flaccianello. Tannins are chewy yet fine, and the wine’s intense dry extract balances perfectly. Cellar for a few years and enjoy for decades.
