Fontodi's 2018 Chianti Classico is always one of the best wines of the vintage, and 2018 is no exception. 

Fontodi makes wine for drinking today, tomorrow or two decades from now. We were lucky enough to taste the newly released 2018s recently, and they are great! 2018 is the perfect vintage to appreciate Fontodi's magic. These are complete wines with driving acidity, pretty fruit complemented by floral notes, a finish that is both long and stony.

There are winds of change blowing in Chianti Classico: rather than masking the vibrancy and purity of Sangiovese with heavy French oak (or worse, with the addition of French varietals), many winemakers have chosen to wholly embrace this noble grape. Few estates can claim responsibility for this renaissance more than Fontodi, a bastion of organic farming and a champion of Sangiovese’s role as the grape of Chianti.

Professional Reviews

Wine Enthusiast

WE 95
"Fragrant and delicious, this opens with aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, blue flower, leather, underbrush and a whiff of French oak. The full-bodied, enveloping palate delivers baked plum, Marasca cherry, licorice and a note of espresso framed in fine-grained enveloping tannins that give it a smooth texture and a weightless finesse."
