2014 was a challenging vintage. But Fontodi gave their vineyards constant attention and applied severe fruit selection. This meant that around one-third less of Flaccianello della Pieve was produced. It’s outstanding and that means it will be snapped up by collectors rapidly. Creamy in texture with tangy cherry, tobacco, herbes de Provence, chocolate-covered plum, spice and green tea. It spent a little less time in oak than normal, making this quite a unique vintage for Italian wine lovers.
An undisputed Italian icon, Flaccianello della Pieve is the Tuscan jewel in the crown of the much-celebrated estate of Fontodi. A pure Sangiovese red, Flaccianello consistently ranks amongst Italy’s most highly rated and much sought-after wines. This spectacular Sangiovese is a perfect to partner to truffles, roast beef or game, or wild mushroom pasta. Already gorgeous, it has at least another two decades of development to offer.£10.27 per 100.00ml
