Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chianti Classico 2013


Lobenberg: Einer der Klassiker unter den Spitzen-Chianti. Volles Aroma bei wunderschöner Balance. Der gehobene Alltagswein schlechthin, besonders für all jene unter uns, die trockene Weine mit Kirscharomen mögen. Und Chianti mit burgundisch samtiger Textur und voller dichter Frucht. Giovanni Manetti ist auch bei diesem Wein, dem einfachsten, den er auf die Flasche zieht, ein radikaler Qualitätsfanatiker und damit vielleicht der verlässlichste Produzent im Chianti. 93/100


Suckling über: Chianti Classico

-- Suckling: A dense and velvety wine with black chocolate and cherry character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Altogether delicious. So well done and from organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. 94/100


Parker über: Chianti Classico

-- Parker: Fontodi's 2013 Chianti Classico is a textbook expression from the appellation. The wine represents a pure expression of Sangiovese that sees six months in large oak casks and an additional 18 months in neutral barrique. Thanks to that non-intrusive aging regime, the wine shows enormous clarity and purity. Sangiovese is front and center. Wild berry, blue flower and tangy spice abound. 92+/100


Galloni über: Chianti Classico

-- Galloni: The 2013 Chianti Classico is gorgeous. My impression is that proprietor Giovanni Manetti has pulled back on the intensity in his wines, although he insists nothing has changed. Still, the 2013 impresses for its total polish and finesse. Of course, some of that may be attributable to the late-ripening vintage. In my view, slightly shorter macerations and more use of large format oak plays a role here. At the same time, there is plenty of Fontodi's signature textural richness, but also striking aromatic presence and tons of persistence. A closing burst of acidity adds vivacity to the dark red and blue stone fruit flavors. The 2013 is fresh, less heavy and also less oaky than some recent editions. This is an absolutely impeccable wine from Fontodi. 92/100

Mein Winzer


Das Landgut Fontodi liegt im Herzen des Chianti-Classico-Gebietes. Von hier blickt man in die südlich von Panzano gelegene "Goldmulde", jenes Tal, dessen Name schon seit Jahrzehnten für die prächtige Südhanglage seiner Reben bürgt.
