The nose shines with freshly picked blackcurrants, dark plums, freshly cut herbs, cinnamon, raspberry cheesecake, glazed cherries, orange and lemon rind. The palate is so well-crafted with a silky ball of tannins surrounded by layers of blue and red fruit and enveloping acidity. A long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now or hold. collapse

Almost opaque ruby-hued, with gorgeous notes of ripe cherries, kirsch, white pepper, licorice, tar, and violets, I’d almost guess Nebbiolo blind off the nose. This carries to a ripe, medium to full-bodied, rich, beautifully concentrated Chianti that pretty much just knocks it out of the park. If you like the richer side of Sangiovese made with class and elegance, don’t miss this. It should cruise for 10-15 years in cold cellars. collapse

Wine Spectator, October 2018
Rich, packed with cherry, leather, dark chocolate and wild herb aromas and flavors. Dense and vibrant, with a long, mouthwatering finish that picks up a graphite edge. Best from 2020 through 2032. – BS

Rich and seductive, the 2015 expresses the radiance of the year while retaining a good bit of translucence and energy. Rose petal, mint, white pepper and crushed flowers add elements of brightness to this classy, super-polished Chianti Classico. More than anything else, though, I am simply blown away by the wine's quality. A decade ago, Giovanni Manetti made darker more concentrated wines. Today, the Fontodi wines speak to finesse. The Chianti Classico is a great place to see that. It was aged in equal parts cask and neutral barrique. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

A cool, elegant, built-to-last style, which has all the hallmarks of great claret. collapse

The 2015 Chianti Classico offers tight and precise fruit characteristics with crisp forest berry, cassis and dried blueberry. The wine is profoundly steady and straight with absolutely no rough edges. This is a lean to mid-weight red with balanced acidity tucked in on the finish. - Monica Larner collapse
