2014 Fontodi Chianti Classico

SKU #1297737 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A red with berry, chili powder and spice that follows through to a full body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish. Fontodi doesn't miss a stride in this difficult vintage. Excellent. Drink now. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Fontodi's 2014 Chianti Classico is one of the most finessed vintages of this wine in recent memory. The combination of the cool growing conditions and a move toward larger oak casks has resulted in a deep yet translucent wine of notable pedigree and class. There is plenty of the typical Panzano richness, but less of the overt weight that has characterized some recent vintages. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Made with organically grown Sangiovese, this elegantly structured red offers enticing aromas of woodland berry, exotic spice and wild herb. Vibrant and savory, the medium-bodied, youthfully austere palate boasts tart cherry, wild raspberry, clove and licorice supported by bright acidity and taut, refined tannins. It’s already tempting but will be even better in a few years. Drink 2019–2026. (KO) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Youthful ruby. Lifted cherry and cool spice nose. Sweetly concentrated raspberry fruit with coating tannins. A little Nebbiolo-like, yet light and utterly convincing in style and length. 17/20 points. (WS) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Chianti Classico is just hitting the market now. This is a light and delicate expression of Sangiovese that delivers floral notes of lavender and violet that are characteristic of a cooler vintage. The wine’s appearance is one mild tone lighter in terms of color and overall concentration. Keeping in theme, the mouthfeel is beautifully driven by tonic freshness and polished elegance. (ML) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure cherry clings to a lean frame, with solid and integrated tannins for support. Stays fresh. Should work well with food, given the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2021. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2017)
