Felsina Fontalloro IGT Toscana 2012
“The 2012 Fontalloro is a stunning expression and delivers the high quality we have come to expect of this celebrated IGT Toscana wine… Careful work has been done here to ensure the high quality of fruit.The bouquet is soft and rich with dark fruit and spice. In the mouth, Fontalloro reveals integrated tannins and acidity.” 94 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate #221.
“Dark red cherry, plum, cinnamon and crushed rock nuances flesh out the 2012 Fontalloro. Next to most of the other wines in the lineup, the 2012 Fontalloro is floral, perfumed, fresh and vibrant, with gorgeous aromatic lift, silky tannins and lovely overall balance. …also possesses more than enough depth to drink well for a number of years. Still, the sexy, radiant finish makes me think most bottles won't be around to make old bones. Put simply, the 2012 Fontalloro is an arrestingly beautiful, showy wine built to please. And please it does.” 94 points, Vinous Media.
“This red evokes cherry, black currant, earth, tobacco and mineral flavors, allied to an elegant frame. Well-structured, remaining fresh and long on the dusty finish. Sangiovese. Best from 2018 through 2029.” 92 points, Wine Spectator.
