WE 95 AG 94+ WA 94+ JS 94 WS 90 - "Ruby red color with rich and intense tones. Variety of aromatic herbs accentuated with generous notes of tobacco and wet earth, black currant and licorice. The palate manifests good consistency of medium-smooth tannins to ensure the lengthy aging. Good weight and structure, with a classic finish."

Details

WE 95 AG 94+ WA 94+ JS 94 WS 90 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "Made entirely from Sangiovese, it opens with fragrances that recall spicy black berries and Mediterranean herbs. The velvety palate delivers power and finesse along with fleshy black cherry, licorice and a graphite note."

According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2010 Fontalloro (Sangiovese) is impeccable. A sweet, open bouquet melds into expressive red fruits. Compared to the 2010 Rancia, Fontalloro is a decidedly more delicate, feminine wine. All the elements are very nicely balanced. I expect the 2010 will enjoy a fairly broad window of drinkability. Today I give the 2010 a very slight nod over the 2009, only because I think the 2010 will age a little longer, but both are striking."

According to Wine Advocate - "The 2010 Fontalloro is 100% Sangiovese sourced from various vineyards. It starts off with a sassy, playful personality thanks to ripe cherry and forest fruit. The complexity of the bouquet builds steadily to include mineral, herbs, anisette and dark clay. The chiseled mineral tones at the back are outstanding. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030."

According to James Suckling - "A red with focus and freshness with plum and peach pit aromas and flavors. Medium-to-full body with wonderfully fine tannins that are in balance with the fruit. Hints of cocoa too. Give it a year or two to soften. Gorgeous sangiovese-based red from a top producer in Chianti Classico. Try in 2014."

According to Wine Spectator - "A mix of black cherry, black currant, tobacco and oak spice notes herald this polished red, which is balanced, but needs a year or two to pull together. Offers fine length. Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2025." 100% Sangiovese. 14% ABV.
