It is known particularly for its Super Tuscan wine, Flaccianello delle Pieve, a full-bodied varietal Sangiovese. The estate is located in the heart of the Classico zone, south of Panzano, in the valley known as the Conca d'Oro, (or golden shell) due to its sun-catching amphitheatre shape. The microclaimte here is warm and dry with a large diurnal temperature variation to ensure that the grapes reach full maturity without compromising the acidity level. The soils of the 70 hectare (173 acre) vineyard are a combination of chalk, clay and schist. The Flaccianello della Pieve wine comes from a selection of the best plots of Sangiovese, but other varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are also cultivated. Fontodi ferments all of its red wines in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, except for the Pinot Nero which uses conical wooden vats. French oak from the Troncais and Allier forests is used for aging, the top wines in 225 litre barriques. As well as the Flaccianello della Pieve, the Fontodi portfolio includes the Chianti Classico Riserva wine Vigna del Sorbo, which is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The generic Chianti Classico represents the core of production, and there are a range of varietal wines made from Syrah, Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) and Sauvignon Blanc.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-03-10T10:38:32-05:00","created_at":"2023-02-26T17:41:51-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Italy","Other_Wine","Producer_Fontodi","Region_Tuscany","RK2202","Source_Bestofwines0223","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Sangiovese"],"price":59899,"price_min":59899,"price_max":59899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42805887500426,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2015 | Fontodi | Flaccianello della Pieve","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":59899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/71_2a4e340b-ac91-4225-a676-3e0c5f3d8286.png?v=1677451356"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/71_2a4e340b-ac91-4225-a676-3e0c5f3d8286.png?v=1677451356","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2015 | Fontodi | Flaccianello della Pieve at CaskCartel.com","id":24294069764234,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.289,"height":703,"width":203,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/71_2a4e340b-ac91-4225-a676-3e0c5f3d8286.png?v=1677451356"},"aspect_ratio":0.289,"height":703,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/71_2a4e340b-ac91-4225-a676-3e0c5f3d8286.png?v=1677451356","width":203}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2015 | Fontodi | Flaccianello della Pieve\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe aromas are crystal-clear here, ranging from dark cherry essence, dried herbs and dark plums to licorice, cloves, vanilla and paprika.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Fontodi\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan color=\"#ff2a00\" style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eWA\u003c\/span\u003e | 98  \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" mce-data-marked=\"1\" data-mce-style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e | 97\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e2015\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 15%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Sangiovese\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Italy, Tuscany\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe aromas are crystal-clear here, ranging from dark cherry essence, dried herbs and dark plums to licorice, cloves, vanilla and paprika.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003e\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #222223;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #222223;\"\u003eReviews:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #9f250d;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #9f250d;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWine Advocate\u003c\/strong\u003e:\u003c\/span\u003e I'm hardly surprised to report that Fontodi's 2015 Flaccianello della Pieve is one of the best wines recorded in this report of new releases from Tuscany.
