Fontodi Meriggio 2017

Fontodi Meriggio 2017

Availability: Out of stock


"The 2017 Meriggio (Sauvignon Blanc) is intriguing. Aging a portion of the wine in amphora gives the 2017 added structure and minerality, both of which are remarkable given the warm, arid conditions of the year. Translucent and energetic, the 2017 has a lot going on. The 2017 was done in 70% steel, 20% amphora and 10% oak. Drinking window: 2018-2022. 89 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."
