Wine tasting notes

Fontalloro is deep ruby in colour with savoury notes and perfumes of spice and tobacco. The palate is powerful and concentrated with ripe tannins and a great structure supporting spiced autumnal fruit. It shows tremendous length with notes of blackberries and tobacco on the finish.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 98 pts

The 2016 Fontalloro is the best vintage of this landmark wine that I have tasted thus far. This is a very elegant vintage, with more volume in the mouth and precise notes of tar, licorice, camphor ash, resin and Indian spice. In a race between the highly competitive 2015 and 2016 vintages, I give a slight advantage to this wine. The warmer 2015 vintage shows more richness and exuberant fruit. However, this wine from 2016 offers a more focused and chiseled delivery. I am hopeful that this wine will continue to evolve and sharpen as it ages in the bottle. This is a beautiful wine to put aside in your cellar for ten years or more.
