SKU #1437838 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Amazing aromas of licorice, wet earth, orange peel and lavender. Full body, tight and super compact and polished. Goes on for minutes. Clearly great. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Fontalloro is the best vintage of this landmark wine that I have tasted thus far. This is a very elegant vintage, with more volume in the mouth and precise notes of tar, licorice, camphor ash, resin and Indian spice. In a race between the highly competitive 2015 and 2016 vintages, I give a slight advantage to this wine. The warmer 2015 vintage shows more richness and exuberant fruit. However, this wine from 2016 offers a more focused and chiseled delivery. I am hopeful that this wine will continue to evolve and sharpen as it ages in the bottle. This is a beautiful wine to put aside in your cellar for ten years or more. (ML) 98+ Inner quote mark (5/2019)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Fontalloro is bold, hearty and deeply flavored, with all of the Sangiovese wildness that is so typical of Fontalloro. Ripe dark cherry, grilled herbs, smoke, leather, game and incense are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in a potent, virile Fontalloro loaded with personality and character. In so many ways, 2016 is THE archetype of what Fontalloro is - a Sangiovese that is a bit wild and unruly but also full of charm. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of dark-skinned fruit, exotic spice, blue flower and menthol shape the nose. It's linear, focused and ethereally elegant, offering succulent Morello cherry, raspberry compote and star anise alongside fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance. (KO) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is rich and polished, with black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors matched to dense tannins and bright acidity. Tips toward the tannic side now, picking up earth, spice and tar notes on the long finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2019)
