Fontodi Flaccianello della Pieve 2016 (6x75cl)

Only available VAT & Duty Paid
Flaccianello is a 100% Sangiovese IGT wine from the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany. The Manetti family has owned Fontodi since 1968; but they have been present in Chianti for centuries. Giovanni Manetti has run the property since 1980 and ensures the wines are as meticulously made as the vineyards are immaculately tended. Fontodi comprises 90 hectares of vineyard, 90% of which are Sangiovese. They are situated in the prime 'Conca d'Oro' (golden shell) of Panzano and have been converted to organic viticulture. Giovanni is now following biodynamic principles also. The Conca d'Oro shape facilitates the perfect ripening of the grapes in a natural amphitheatre.

Flaccianello – Fontodi’s flagship wine - is made from a selection of the best grapes from the best parts of the Fontodi vineyards. The soil here is classic 'galestro', the schistous clay on which the Sangiovese grape produces its best results. Monica Larner released her Wine Advocate note on the Flaccianello della Pieve 2016 in July 2019 and dropped a bombshell. She described Flaccianello 2016 as a “masterpiece”, which had outshone Masseto 2016 in a blind tasting and awarded it a perfect 100 score. This was followed up, almost unbelievably, with another 100 score from Antonio Galloni at Vinous just days later.
