Fontodi Fontodi Chianti Classico 2012 750ML 2013
93 points Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of blackberry, crushed violet, tilled earth and a hint of tobacco lead the nose of this generous wine. The chewy palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, ground pepper, clove and anise alongside ripe, velvety tannins. It’s already delicious but will continue to develop over the next few years. Drink through 2020. — K.O. (9/1/2015) (9/2015)

The 2012 Chianti Classico is round, sweet and super-expressive. Dark red cherry, spice and tobacco meld together as this silky, open-knit Chianti Classico shows off its inviting personality. Succulent and racy to the core, the 2012 will drink well pretty much upon release. This is another fabulous showing from Fontodi. (AG) (9/2015)

This rich red features pure cherry, raspberry and subtle briar flavors, shaded by almond and tobacco accents. Firm and powerful, with a long, expansive finish. (10/2015)
Wine SpectatorThis red delivers cherry and strawberry flavors in a rich profile, turning crisp and lightly astringent on the finish. Shows a bit more depth than many 2013s. Drink now through 2018. 12,000 cases made.
