Red Wine /// Sangiovese // Chianti Classico / Italy
One of, if not the greatest producer of Chianti Classico year after year, no matter the vintage. The wines just ooze class. 2015/16/17 may just have been the greatest trilogy of Chianti Classicos ever and 14 was one of the best out of a difficult vintage. 18 came along and repeated the trick and now 19 suggests they are incapable of creating un-profound Classico.

This benchmark Panzano estate is still in the hands of long-time owner, Giovanni Manetti, but the new generation is very much in evidence: Manetti’s son Bernardo, daughter Margherita and nephew Costa now play fundamental roles as the estate continues to grow. Fontodi’s 2019 is striking and pronounced in fragrance. Liquorice and black cherry are offset by coffee, char and tobacco. Vigorous tannins yield slowly but surely as this makes its way across the palate. Its structure is well-proportioned with the ripe black fruit, substantial but never heavy or imposing, underscored by some tanginess. As always, it soars above its category. 93 POINTS DECANTER
