  • 2006 Fontodi Flaccianello della Pieve Colli della Toscana Centrale IGT - Italy, Tuscany, Colli della Toscana Centrale IGT (11/15/2009)
    Dark almost black wine, huge nose of alcohol, toasty oak, coffee notes, mint, dark fruit and wallops of vanilla. Over time, the nose expressed a bit more fruit with black cherries and some sweet dark plums emanating from the nose. The palate was rather closed but what structure. As KSCO2 mentioned, a wall of tannins greet the unprepared drinker floating on a sea of alcohol. There is elegance and great power to this wine, almost smelt like a Croze-Hermitage in the beginning but it found more elegance as the night went on. Long tannic finish with dark fruit. A bruiser for sure but I'd love to revisit this wine in say 6-8 years from now. 95+ (95 pts.)
