"Here is yet another excellent wine from Fontodi. The 2007 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (375 ml) is 50% Malvasia and 50% Sangiovese aged in small oak caratelli for 84 months. This is a broad brush-stroke wine with thick lines of glycerin and lazy movements in the glass. The appearance is beautiful with deep amber intensity and polished copper highlights. The bouquet is rich and intense with caramel, honey and candied fruit. Only 1,500 precious bottles were produced. It's hard to assign a drinking window to such an indestructible dessert wine. Drink: 2017-2050. 96 points

It is impossible to exaggerate my enthusiasm for this set of new releases from Giovanni Manetti's venerable Fontodi. I'll start with the 2013 Flaccianello della Pieve that left me speechless. This is the wine that taught me to love the 2013 vintage in Central Tuscany. I also want to underline my excitement surrounding the two outlier wines - the Syrah Case Via and the Pinot Nero Case Via - that bring a fresh new vision to the winemaking potential of Panzano in Chianti. These revolutionary wines break all the rules in one of Italy's most regulated wine regions. Good for Fontodi."
