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.
The 'Fontalloro' is deep ruby in colour. On the nose intense aromas of blackberries and sour cherries marry with savoury notes of spice and tobacco. The palate is powerful and concentrated with ripe tannins, great structure and tremendous length on the finish.
Grapes for Fontalloro are grown on the Fontalloro and Poggio al Sole vineyards situated inside the Chianti Classico zone, and the Casalino and Arcidossino vineyards in the Chianti Colli Senesi zone.
The wine was then racked into barriques (a mixture of first and second use) in the spring and aged in those for 18 to 22 months. Before bottling the final blend was assembled and left to marry in stainless-steel tanks. Finally, the wine was aged in bottle in the Fèlsina cellars for 8 to 12 months before release.
