    August 18, 2020 - Grabbed by accident. Remembered this having a pretty nose but decided to hold on account of acid...

    It's drinking really well now, particularly with rich food. Candied cherries on the nose with some savory aspects that carry over to the modest palate.

    Drinks like a good french oaked Chianti=no Sangiovese funk and the oak is in check imo

    Rather modest in the savory dept for sangiovese=no "sangio funk". French oak adds generic early deliciousness/smoothness without entirely obliterating with fruit expression. <<<I'd still identify this as italian sangio blend but not 100% Sangiovese

    Tannin and acid are present, but pleasantly so. Not sure I'd say either is "fully integrated" (whatever that means particularly in more elegant wines like this) but...

    Tannin right now= chalky presence in the mouthfeel and present in slight astringence on the back.

    Acid: plenty enough at this stage balancing the dark/candied fruit nicely, but not searing.

    August 30, 2019 - The color of this wine is what I am first striked be, it is a light ruby colour, nearly pinot colour. Aromas of bright red fruit, violets and crushed stones, the palate was lighter than expected with characteristics of sweet cherries, spices, black pepper with very fine polished tannins. This vineyard is located at 650ft and hence gives that light colour and slightly brighter acidity on the palate.

    April 19, 2019 - Chianti Classico tour 2019 - 2 -Conca D'Oro in Panzano + B a C: So different from their CC, this is coming from different grower and Fontodi only cellars the ready wine as far as I know.
    So elegant and old school, it is much more in Burgundian style.

    March 6, 2019 - The bouquet was perfumed, with floral-tinged red berries, smoky minerals, hints of orange peel, and leather. On the palate, I found soft textures with sweet red fruits, lifted by savory minerals, zesty spices and hints of fine tannin. The finish was medium in length, resonating on minerality with hints of dried red berry fruit.
