Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Flaccianello della Pieve (100% Sangiovese aged in 100% new oak) is another winner from this estate. Still extremely primary, it exhibits a dark color and plenty of concentration on its ample, full-bodied frame, with generous ripe fruit and sweet toasted oak flavors. It shows outstanding persistence and enough acidity to provide balance, with a lingering note of sweetness on the finish that is typical of the vintage. Today the oak is still quite prominent and the aromatic qualities are not yet fully developed, but Flaccianello has a track record of maturing into a splendid wine and I have no doubt that will be the case here as well. It is a terrific effort from Fontodi.

Wine SpectatorAromas of blackberry and chocolate, with hints of dried flowers. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, long finish. A beautifully refined red for such a hot vintage. Sangiovese. Best after 2007.
