“100 Point "Breathtaking" Super Tuscan!”

"I absolutely loved it." Wine Advocate

By David Gettenberg

Fontodi's Flaccianello della Pieve is among the Super Tuscan elites with the likes of Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Tignanello and Solaia. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

From a gorgeous 2018 vintage, few Tuscan reds can match the quality of Flaccianello! This is the second 100 point score in only three vintages. The prior 100 point wine, 2016, was an equally gorgeous wine that customers are still trying to obtain.

The 2018 may even be better and will be talked about for years to come!

"One of the most famous so-called ‘Super Tuscan' from 100% pure Sangiovese. A stunning vineyard selection, then aged in small oak barrels for 24 months. Small red fruits of undergrowth at the nose, raspberry, and red currant, then scents of eucalyptus and nutmeg at the end. The mouthfeel is breathtaking: crispy, dense, intense, vertical with salty tannins. Great persistence with a fruity-salty taste returning." Luca Gardini

Press & Tasting Notes
100

“I absolutely loved it.”

Antonio Galloni • 100 / 100

"The 2018 Flaccianello della Pieve is another stellar wine from Fontodi.  It is the richest Flaccianello ever made (in terms fo dry extract), with elevated acidity that trails the 2016 by just a touch, but it does not taste like that at all.  Dark cherry, violet, lavender, spice, mocha and graphite build with a bit of time in the glass.  Like the Sorbo, the 2018 Flaccianello is not a wine of size, as in most previous years, but rather a wine that exudes vibrancy, energy and class from start to finish.  I absolutely loved it."
