2014 Flaccianello della Pieve, Tenuta Fontodi


$99.00 per Bottle


4 Bottles




"The 2014 Flaccianello della Pieve will probably drink well a bit earlier than the Vigna del Sorbo, as it has more midpalate creaminess, softer contours and a slightly more immediate personality. Even so, the translucent finesse of the vintage is very much in evidence. A rush of black cherry, plum, tobacco, licorice, chocolate and spice infuses the sweet, creamy finish. The 2014 spent 18 months in oak (less than was once the norm), 80% of it new." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Well-marked by toasty, vanilla-scented oak, this red boasts a core of cherry, floral, tobacco and graphite flavors. Pure and intense, with fine harmony and an aftertaste that echoes fruit and a smoky, minerally element. Terrific length. Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2040. 3,500 cases made." Wine Spectator

"This is an excellent 2014 with beautiful linear fruit and silky, firm tannins. Full body, tight and bright. A lot of new wood showing now but should come around nicely. Drink in 2019." JamesSuckling.com
