Buy Fontodi Flaccianello della Pieve
Wine Advocate 95 points - The 2011 Flaccianello della Pieve is 100% Sangiovese aged 24 months in new French oak and two months in large oak cask. I’m not sure how Fontodi does it, but this edition of Flaccianello is simply beautiful. It is a seamless expression with lingering tones of red cherry, coffee, spice, truffle and red rose that flow harmoniously into unison. In the mouth, the wine shows great opulence and textural richness that is pushed forward by the stylistic softness of the tannins and the wine’s inner freshness. Pretty menthol tones appear on the finish. Drink: 2015-2030.  (Oct 2014)

Wine Spectator 95 points - Violet, black currant, raspberry and spice aromas and flavors gain intensity as this red builds to a lengthy conclusion. Vibrant and harmonious, this will require some time to shed its well-proportioned tannins. Sangiovese. Best from 2017 through 2030. From Italy.B.S. Wine Spectator 2014 Top 100 #14
