    "Fontalloro" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

    Shiny ruby with a light garnet edge, mineral, woody-fruity aroma of cherry, cedar, blueberry and hazelnut. With air intake, the aromas become more complex and the terroir influence very clear. Compact and very present on the palate with fine-grained tannin and classic proportions. Very high ageing potential and one of the highest-class Sangiovese of central Tuscany. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sparkling ruby with a fine garnet tongue. Appealing, multi-layered nose with notes of tobacco, plums and raspberry. Flows well-balanced and harmonious over the palate, lots of fine-meshed tannin, clearly worked out fruit, shows rich pressure again in the final, long finish." Falstaff

    "Black cherry and blackberry flavors are accented by earth, rosemary and tobacco in this sleek, incisive red, which is balanced and linear, with vibrant acidity driving the long finish, where a note of iron creeps into the mix." Wine Spectator

    "A tight, fresh Fontalloro with dark cherry, chocolate and toasted oak. Some walnut, too. It's full-bodied, yet polished and structured. Sort of shy. But this will develop really nicely with some bottle age." James Suckling

    "The 2018 Fontalloro is bright, floral and full of energy. In most vintages, Fontalloro is quite open, but the 2018 is especially nervy and taut. That won't be an issue in time, of course, but readers should plan on being patient. Sangiovese is so expressive here. A whole range of floral and savory accents lingers on the close." Vinous

    "There is plenty of dark fruit at its core, but this wine also reveals dry tones of jarred oregano, grilled Mediterranean herb, crushed aspirin and graham cracker. The mouthfeel is pleasantly lean and silky, and perhaps the wine delivers more in terms of length than it does weight or texture. A little more bottle age should help flesh out and soften these results." Robert Parker
