Description

Fontodi Chianti Classico 2017

100% Sangiovese

Fontodi Chianti Classico 2017 is an elegantly structured Chianti offers enticing aromas of berries, enriched with exotic spice and hints of wild herbs. This medium-bodied wine is well-balanced on the palate, which blends nicely with refined tannins and distinct acidity.

Fermentation and maceration are performed in temperature-controlled tanks with indigenous yeasts for at least 2 weeks. It is then aged in Troncais and Allier barrels for 18 months.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

A rich, layered CC with intense cherry and flower character, as well as orange peel. Full-bodied with firm, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.

 

– 95 POINTS

Fragrant and delicious, this opens with aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, blue flower, leather, underbrush and a whiff of French oak. The full-bodied, enveloping palate delivers baked plum, Marasca cherry, licorice and a note of espresso framed in fine-grained enveloping tannins that give it a smooth texture and a weightless finesse.

The Fontodi 2017 Chianti Classico gives the impression of being slightly mature or advanced, even now straight out of the gate. The hot and dry vintage has shaped aromas of candied cherry, dried plum, rum raisin, white chocolate and a dusty note of wet chalk. The wine is quite beautiful in terms of mouthfeel, with well-integrated alcohol and tannins that close without sharpness or astringency. This dark and sultry Sangiovese shows moderate fruit, focused mostly on dark blackberry and dried cherry. I would recommend a near-term drinking window for this pleasantly rich and accessible wine.
Drink Date: 2020 – 2026
