    A red Tuscan with a rich structure

    Toscana "Fontalloro" 2011 from Felsina is a single-variety Sangiovese red wine produced in the Toscana appellation, produced from the best grapes on the vineyard. The terroir is composed of various soil types due to its location, bordering the Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi appellations. The soil is a composition of stones and limestone, sandy silt, pebbles and sediment in the Chianti Colli Senesi appellation. Fermentation took place for 16 - 20 days in stainless steel tanks, while the wine was reared in French oak barrels, new or used once, for a period of 18 - 22 months.

    At the tasting, Toscana "Fontalloro" 2011 from Felsina presents a rich and intense ruby red colour. The nose is generous and releases powerful aromas of herbs, tobacco, soil (wet and dry), blackcurrant and liquorice. It has a superb consistency in the mouth and smooth tannins that provide exceptional aging potential. A wine with a rich, elegant and refined structure on the finish.

    This comment above provides a general idea of the wine presented. This may change with time.

    Parker : 94 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2011 Fontalloro is a pure expression of Sangiovese with fruit sourced from the Chianti Classico area and the Colli Senesi area. It ages in new and once-used barrique for up to 22 months. Aromas flow with authority, spanning a large swath of fruit and oak-related attributes. The best part, however, is the aromatic layering: Slices of bright cherry fruit, dark chocolate, polished river stone and tilled earth peel back fluidly. It shows a superior sense of integration and balance.
