Tasting Notes

2 Red Glasses Gambero Fontodi has been producing this wine for some time and its' multitude of different wines is sometimes confusing. The 'Sorbo' has been the revolutionary in Fontodi's stable. Cabernet Sauvignon has been added to the Sangiovese for a completely different feel and flavor. The Cab aromatics can easily dominate the Sangiovese if not done properly but Franco Bernabei Fontodi's consulting enologist and the winemaker with more 3 Bicchieri's in his closet than anyone, is the man for the job. The Cab gives a rich middle to the wine that sometimes is lacking in Sangiovese and is better adapted to aging in new small French oak. The Sangiovese gives the wine length and spirit. This wine has more than what you might think of in a regular Chianti, perfect for roasted meats. 91 points from the Wine Spectator... 'Impressive aromas of crushed berries, with hints of cedar. Full-bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a long, bright, fruity finish. Delicious. Best after 2003. (August-02)'
