Fontodi Chianti Classico DOCG 2012
Ruby color with purple hue. Aromas of red berries, spices, flowers and leather. Sappy fruit on the palate, the right amount of spice flavors, it drinks so well, especially with food where the wine simply shine. Still young and it shows with the tension and the little dryness on the finish. Air does help and adds silkiness on the palate to make me appreciate even more this wine. Very good+ (90)
Made of Sangiovese. Aged 12 months in French oak barrels. Alcohol level of 14%
Available at the SAQ for 29,90$ (Code SAQ : 00879841)
