Felsina Berardenga Fontalloro Toscana IGT 2015, Tuscany, Italy
AWARD: International Wine Challenge - Silver.
Wine Advocate - 97 points. "The 2015 Fontalloro is a landmark achievement. The bouquet strikes out with immediate complexity. It dangles aromas of black cherry, spice, tar, forest floor, wild rose and campfire ash in front of your nose with seductive allure. The unified presentation and delivery of all those aromas is profound and impressive. This edition of Fontalloro is exceptionally smooth and silky in texture and this is surely linked to the ripe, soft and finely textured fruit produced in this vintage. This is a pure expression of Sangiovese that is aged in barrique for up to 22 months."

A blend of three different vineyards between the appellation of Chianti Classico and Colli Senesi, this wine is 100% Sangiovese representing the best of both sides - powerful and structured with perfumes of spices, blackberries and tobacco.
Fontalloro is a deep ruby wine with savoury notes and perfumes of spice and tobacco. The palate is powerful and concentrated with ripe tannins and a great structure supporting spiced autumnal fruit. It shows tremendous length with notes of blackberries and tobacco on the finish.
