Fontalle Chianti Classico Gran Selezione
A fine wine that takes the name of the vine that already existed at the time when Niccolò Machiavelli was the proprietor of the Estate. Today as in the past the Fontalle vine is located close to a spring ("fontana") of the purest water which contributes to the growth of the finest Sangiovese grapes used for this Riserva.
Vivid purple color and a rich and intense bouquet with definite fruity (raspberries, blackberries) and floral (irises) hint backed by notes of vanilla and resin. The flavor is full, concentrated, very elegant and balanced with a very agreeable, lingering aftertaste of licorice and conserve.

- Saraceni Wines
This vintage is worth every cent. I have drank numerous different wines over the years, but this is the first one that I can truly say I adore. From its full body to its crisp but smooth flavor; it isn't simply a wine; it's an experience. I truly hope they get more in stock soon!
I have purchased Saraceni wines a few times now and have always received cordial service and delicious products. I would highly recommend trying the different chiantis (my favorite is libero riserva di famiglia).
Your wines are all great. I am a repeat customer.
