A red with berry, chili powder and spice that follows through to a full body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish. Fontodi doesn't miss a stride in this difficult vintage. Excellent. Drink now.

Fontodi's 2014 Chianti Classico is one of the most finessed vintages of this wine in recent memory. The combination of the cool growing conditions and a move toward larger oak casks has resulted in a deep yet translucent wine of notable pedigree and class. There is plenty of the typical Panzano richness, but less of the overt weight that has characterized some recent vintages.

Made with organically grown Sangiovese, this elegantly structured red offers enticing aromas of woodland berry, exotic spice and wild herb. Vibrant and savory, the medium-bodied, youthfully austere palate boasts tart cherry, wild raspberry, clove and licorice supported by bright acidity and taut, refined tannins. It's already tempting but will be even better in a few years. Drink 2019–2026.

(17/20) Youthful ruby. Lifted cherry and cool spice nose. Sweetly concentrated raspberry fruit with coating tannins. A little Nebbiolo-like, yet light and utterly convincing in style and length. (WS)
