"The 2015 Flaccianello della Pieve is even more stratospheric than it was last year. Rich and ample on the palate, Flaccianello captures all of the best qualities of this radiant vintage. The blend of sites, all in higher altitude spots near the center of town, yields a gorgeous, riveting wine of the very highest level. Dense and brooding, with magnificent energy as well as nuance, the 2015 Flaccianello is positively stunning. Drinking window: 2025-2040. 99 points

It's hard to believe, but Giovanni Manetti continues to take wines to even greater heights. Two thousand sixteen is without a question the finest vintage I have ever tasted here. The wines have a level of focus and delineation that is truly remarkable. Of course conditions were ideal in 2016, with warm days, cool nights and no shock events. The decision to move towards gentler vinifications and also finish aging in cask for both Vigna del Sorbo and Flaccianello has paid off handsomely. Both wines are off the charts. I also tasted a 2018 Trebbiano from 60-year-old vines done in amphora with no malolactic fermentation that is savory, expressive and flat-out delicious. Hopefully it will become a commercial wine at some point. The future looks very bright at Fontodi, especially now that Manetti's children, Bernardo and Margherita, are part of the team.
