Fontodi Dino 2015

Fontodi Dino 2015

Availability: Out of stock


"The 2015 Dino is a powerful wine with huge fruit and equally imposing tannins. An explosion of pungent red cherry fruit, savory herbs, blood orange, plum and lavender gives the 2015 is exotic, bold personality. Proprietor Giovanni Manetti gave the 2015 two full years in cask, longer than normal, as he felt the tannins needed more time to integrate. That is certainly understandable tasting the wine today. In fact, the 2015 still needs time! There is no track record to know how the Dino will age, but it appears to have significant potential. Drinking window: 2019-2025. 94 points

Giovanni Manetti is one of the leading producers in Chianti Classico, both for his wines and the influence he wields as the newly elected president of the Consorzio del Chianti Classico. Over the last few years, Manetti has moved towards a style that emphasizes greater energy in the wines and less overt oak influence. Readers will find all that and more in these exceptional new releases. The top wines are thrilling, but the straight Chianti Classico is equally worthy of attention. To be frank, it is better than the top wine at a number of estates.
