"Shows excellent color and richness for a Sangiovese, with aromas of sultana, coffee, toasty oak and vanilla bean. Full-bodied, with masses of fruit and chewy tannins. The concentration and depth of fruit and layers of tannins are breathtaking. A blockbuster."
This wine was named #8 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2009.

2012 Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino

"The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino could almost be mistaken for a Riserva given the amazing depth and impenetrable darkness it shows in the glass. The wine is made from the estate’s youngest and lowest vines that have definitely taken on the brunt of the 2009 summer heat. The mouthfeel is supple and rich and somewhat one-dimensional. At this young stage, the bouquet shows awkward whiffs of toasted coconut and popcorn that prevented me from scoring it higher."

2011 Fontodi Flaccianello

This wine was named #14 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2014 list.

"Aromas and flavors of violet, black currant, raspberry and spice gain intensity as this red builds to its lengthy conclusion. Vibrant and harmonious, this needs some time to shed its well-proportioned tannins. Sangiovese."

Reviewed by: Wine Spectator - 95pts

"Violets, crushed flowers, licorice, cloves and menthol wrap around the palate in the 2011 Flaccianello. A soft, seamless wine, the 2011 retains gorgeous freshness within the context of the year. Today, the Flaccianello is more expressive than the Sorbo, but it was also bottled two months earlier. This is another wine with off the charts levels of both polyphenols and acidity."

2007 Fontodi Flaccianello

"I tasted the 2007 Flaccianello a number of times from barrel and tank before it was bottled. The 2007 is a bold, extroverted Flaccianello that sweeps across the palate with sensual layers of candied cherries, violets, spices and minerals. Dark, mentholated notes develop in the glass, adding further dimensions of inner sweetness, weight and complexity to this Tuscan thoroughbred. While so many 2007s are forward and open, Flaccianello remains muscular, taut and in need of significant cellaring. Still, the round, enveloping finish augurs extremely well for the future."
