Flaccianello della Pieve, Fontodi, Tuscany, Italy 2012
Bright, ruby red in colour. The bouquet opens with ripe, dark cherries, violets and plums, complemented by a hint of spice. This wine has wonderful structure and the palate is typically rich and full with characteristic fine, supple tannins. The finish is flavourful and persistent.
The Fontodi estate has 80 hectares of vineyards, all of which are found in the Conca d‘Oro (The Golden Shell), an amphitheatre-shaped valley to the south of Panzano. This shape facilitates the full ripening of the grapes.
