Vibrant raspberry and candied cherry aromas are strongly underscored by violet and vanilla. Juicy and dense on entry then soft and creamy in the middle with sweet flavors of red cherry redcurrant licorice and minerals. This wonderfully balanced wine finishes long and smooth with enough ripe acidity to maintain its shape and lingering mineral and peppery nuances. Beautiful wine.

The 2007 Chianti Classico is fresh and perfumed as it bursts into the palate in a generous silky expression of Sangiovese. This is an especially open vintage for the Chianti Classico that should drink well upon release. The balance harmony and softness are all commendable. This is a fabulous effort from Fontodi. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

Blackberry and dark plum aromas follow through to a full body with silky tannins and a bright fruity finish. There's a nice combination of bright fruit and clean acidity. Drink now. 14000 cases made. -JS

Soft supple and inviting this is a beautifully executed Chianti Classico that puts as much emphasis on the quality of aromas as it does on the feel the wine imparts in the mouth. It's polished and plush with lingering notes of red fruit spice and blue flowers. - M.L.
