Ruby red color with rich and intense tones. Variety of aromatic herbs accentuated with generous notes of tobacco and wet earth (dry earth, as well), black currant and licorice. The palate manifests good consistency of medium-smooth tannins to ensure the lengthy ageing. Good weight and structure, with a classic finish. Optimum cellar life for the great vintages.

Wine EnthusiastMade entirely from Sangiovese, it opens with fragrances that recall spicy black berries and Mediterranean herbs. The velvety palate delivers power and finesse along with fleshy black cherry, licorice and a graphite note.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Fontalloro is 100% Sangiovese sourced from various vineyards. It starts off with a sassy, playful personality thanks to ripe cherry and forest fruit. The complexity of the bouquet builds steadily to include mineral, herbs, anisette and dark clay. The chiseled mineral tones at the back are outstanding. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

Wine SpectatorA mix of black cherry, black currant, tobacco and oak spice notes herald this polished red, which is balanced, but needs a year or two to pull together. Offers fine length. Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2025. 3,583 cases made.
