Fontodi Filetta di Lamole Chianti Classico

, 2016

Italy Red

Tuscany 75cl

This is a fairly new wine from Fontodi coming form a different region in Tuscany to their main wine. This vineyard is 600 metres above sea level. Organic viticulture too.
Cherry, dried herbs, roasted meats too on the nose, floral characters as well.
Richer and plusher than the 2015 although similar ins style.
Lovely medium bodied Chianti, cherry, dried herbs, meaty savoury notes, hint of chocolate with ripe tannins a lovely subtle sweetness. Has a brightness and freshness with structure which may be due to the altitude, whatever I really like it. Would be great with some porchetta or some herby lamb on the bbq! Top quality.
