    June 3, 2019 - This bottle showed much better than the previous one that I opened a while back. Still holding up with ripe and sweet fruit core. Balanced with soft tannins. Drink soon.

    May 11, 2019 - No formal TN. This is my last of 3 bottles of this wine. lastr tasted 3 yrs ago, I gave it 91 pts. Probably hanging at 90-91 still. Perhaps a bit less fresh, but overall delicious food wine. Drink up.

    February 15, 2019 - great nose of wild dark raspberry and deep forest floor; still has plenty of fruit with a full mid palate; great acidity that is slightly coarse. Decant for sediment. Still really good.

    September 11, 2018 - One of the best Chianti Classico examples in a moderate price range. Fruity yet tannic, not thin like the normal genre.

    (Fontodi Chianti Classico) This wine has spent 12 months in oak, and the yield in this vintage was about 200,000 bottles. A bright colour in the glass, and aromatically a slightly warm and meaty nose, although there is also some ripe and fresh fruits and a violet perfume, with a typical Sangiovese custardy edge. Soft and warm on entry, meaty as the nose suggested, grippy with some substance and a nice tannic backbone. Although the tannins show quite firmly on the finish, there is good acidity throughout giving the wine an attractive lift. Very good.

    (Fontodi Chianti Classico) Very dark red violet color; nice, very tart black fruit, tar, Italian herbs nose, with a touch of brett; tasty, focused, very tart black fruit, tar palate with medium acidity and firm tannins; tasty now but could use 2-plus years of bottle age; medium-plus finish (good value for under $30)
