Fattoria di Felsina Fontalloro 2013
Gorgeous and soft, the 2013 Fontalloro is another landmark wine from this classic vintage. There is enormous intensity here and the wine is only at the beginning of its long aging trajectory. I suggest you put off drinking it for five to ten more years. There is evident thickness and generosity here, especially in the way those bold fruit favors are woven between dark spice and leather. There are sour accents on the close that remind you of the wine's youth. The tannins are fine and well integrated.
Cherry, plum, tobacco and tar flavors are shaded by vanilla and coconut notes in this youthful red, which turns more austere on the finish but resonates with persistence and equilibrium. Sangiovese. Best from 2018 through 2026. 3,350 cases made.
