What the Critics say
Fontodi's 2015 Pinot Nero Case Via is distinctly floral and savory, with good aromatic presence and lovely balance. Crushed flowers, dried cherry, mint, tobacco and white pepper are nicely woven together. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later, as the flavors are bit on the forward side. Drink: 2018-2024. (Jan18)
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.
