Fontodi - Flaccianello della Pieve 2019

Maximum quantity available reached.

A cult wine with charm and style. An icon.

The Flaccianello embodies a touch of genius in an inimitable way. It is characterized by velvety fullness, rich aromas and finesse, with an incredibly precise focus on the fruit. The finale is highly complex and enormously long.

At the latest with the 2016 vintage, which received 100 Parker points, Flaccianello is undisputedly one of the best red wines in Italy.

Expansion: The Flaccianello is a pure Sangiovese that ferments at 28 °C - 30 °C. It then remains on the mash for 15-18 days. In March, the wine arrives in Nevers and Alliers barriques, about 30% of which are renewed every year, depending on the quality of the vintage.

Clearly: A Bistecca Fiorentina must be accompanied by a Flaccianello! But even without Bistecca an incredible wine!

Goes well with all pan-fried meat - tagliata, steak or ox chops. But also great with lamb and game.
