Like the Fontodi Pinot Nero, this wine shows enormous creativity and courage. The 2013 Syrah Case Via opens to a dark and impenetrable appearance with blackberry, bitter chocolate, cured meat, Indian spice and crushed black pepper. This wine is absolutely unique within its context. The tannins are plush and succulent. With so many excellent game dishes in Tuscany like wild boar and rabbit, I cannot imagine a better pairing partner. Only 6,000 bottles are made.
95 points | Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

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.
