The 2012 Flaccianello della Pieve, a selection of the estate's best fruit, presents a darker, more virile expression of Sangiovese. Here, too, the purity of the flavors is truly striking. Cinnamon, cloves, new leather, licorice and plums are some of the notes that soar from the glass. The 2012 is full-bodied and voluptuous, in classic Flaccianello style...This is one of the finest young Flaccianellos I can remember. Simply put, the 2012 Flaccianello is a real stunner. Wow! Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Tasted next to the 2010, this is finer in structure and more accessible now. Well made and seamless front to back, 2012 was tough for many in Tuscany but this seems to have come through rather unscathed. #fontodi

Solid. I've had better vintages if this wine. Seems to have all pieces and integration is probably several years away. I'm not crazy about his right now but certainly will improve with age.

A notch below the 09. Nice notes of barrel toast and coffee on the nose. Palette is a little tense as tannins are prominent. Acid is also lively. Needs at least another 3 years to congeal.

Great wine - plenty of black Berry and good complexity.
