Fontodi Flaccianello della Pieve 2009
|Appellation||Colli della Toscana centrale|
Wine SpectatorThe first impression of this red is purity and finesse, as black currant, raspberry and violet aromas and flavors stay focused and persistent. An earthy leather element and mineral notes chime in on the finish, backed by a vibrant structure. Sangiovese. Best from 2015 through 2032. 5,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Flaccianello della Pieve is a huge wine that definitely shows the richness of the year, yet somehow retains fabulous balance. Ripe black cherries, mocha, spices and licorice are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. The 2009 Flaccianello is impressive, but readers will have to be exceptionally patient. As good as the 2009 is, it doesn't have the sexiness of the 2004 or 2007, nor the power of vintages like 2006 or 2008. Instead, it is a bit of an in-between wine with elements of all those years. Today it is the wine's structure and concentration that dominates. My most recent tasting suggests the wine is beginning to close down hard. Next to the Sorbo, Flaccianello has more richness and volume, but slightly less vibrancy. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.
