Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 90
"The 2015 Chianti Classico Fontalpino is a delightful wine to drink. It shows ripe primary fruit and sweet back notes that add to the textural richness and the decisive but relatively understated power of the wine. Dark cherry, blackberry, spice and cured leather are part of the aromatic ensemble. The mouthfeel is fresh, soft and nicely constructed with pretty layers of medium extraction and firmness."

Wine Spectator

WS 90
"A meaty, dense and tannic version, with ample cherry, leather, iron and tobacco notes at the core. A beam of lively acidity drives the finish, which leans to the underbrush side. Best from 2019 through 2030. 3,300 cases made."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 90
" Made with organically grown Sangiovese, this opens with aromas of mulberry, iris and underbrush. The bright juicy palate offers black cherry, black pepper, clove and star anise alongside polished tannins and fresh acidity." -Kerin O’Keefe
