wine description

Fontalloro 2009 is born from the selection of the best Sangiovese grapes grown in the vineyards of the Chianti Classico estate in the upper part of Fèlsina, and in the denomination of Chianti Colli Senesi at lower heights (from 330 to 407 meters s.l.m). Fully exposed to the south-west, they are characterized by different terrains: rocky, calcareous and stony, that of the Chianti Classico; rich in sands, silt, small pebbles and marine sediments, the one on the border with the Crete Senesi. Once the grapes are harvested they are crushed and de-stemmed, the indigenous yeasts activate fermentation at temperatures between 28 ° and 30 °. The duration of maceration varies from 16 to 20 days with punching down and pumping over according to the cellar program; the malolactic fermentation is carried out in steel, in March the wine is transferred to barrels where it matures for 18/22 months. The final assembly is in steel followed by a further refinement for 8/12 months in the bottle.

tasting notes

Classic ruby with a medium transparency. The nose has a strong bond with the territory and its Chianti matrix is clear: aromas of cherry, wild berries, blood notes, spices and violet follow one another. With an empty glass emerge notes of leather and parched wood. Impressive mouth for cohesion and minerality, the tannin is biting but well integrated with the savory and glyceric components; the finish is long and safe.

aging capacity

Long aging wine.

small tips

Taste it at a temperature of 18 ° C with a large and juicy Florentine.
