Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator: 98 Points
Tasted from magnum. Now on the plateau of maturity, boasting sweet cherry, plum, sandalwood and spice bouquet. This is beautifully integrated, with fruit, spice, tobacco and tea flavors, very vigorous and long, yet with plenty to give. Kept improving with air.óNon-blind Flaccianello vertical (July 2014). Drink now through 2030. 4,000 cases made.


Robert Parker: 94 Points
The 1997 Flaccianello della Pieve shows broad shoulders and a robust style that has carried it forward over the years with grace and determination. Compared to the 1999 vintage, this wine is a bigger and bolder expression of Fontodi's best Sangiovese grapes. The vintage was characterized by a hot and dry summer, and the resulting berries were smaller and more compact in structure with thicker skins. This has contributed to the wine's sizable width and breadth. I also want to point out that the tannins have achieved a perfect point of silkiness. Those 18 years of aging have ushered this wine forward to a spectacular moment in its drinking window. If you have a bottle, you will be well rewarded by its current state of excellence.
