What the Critics say
'Sweet red cherries, mint, licorice and spices lift from the glass in the 2012 Pinot Nero Case Via. An attractive, mid-weight wine, the 2012 offers tons of near and medium-term appeal. A bit of rain at the end of August helped creating favorable conditions for the last phase of ripening in what had been up until then a dry, hot year. Drink: 2016-2024' (Sep14)
Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico precisely in the valley lying south of the town of Panzano called the ‘Conca d’Oro’ or the golden shell due to its amphitheatre shape. A genuine and characteristc ‘Terroir’, Chianti Classico has been famous for centuries for its tradition of quality wine cultivation, thanks to a unique combination of high altitude, calcar clayschist soil, lots of light, and a fantastic micro-climate – warm and dry with a marked difference in day and night-time temperatures.
