The nose was rich with depths of red fruits, yet there was a bright and lifting quality to the fruit which added alluring contrasts. Cherry, crushed strawberry, minerals and hints of spice wafted up from the glass. On the palate, I found wild berry fruit with hints of herbs and cedar, as a wave of acidity pulsed across the senses. The finish showed tremendous length along with imposing structure, yet the fruit remained rich, intense and ever-present. The 2012 Fontodi VdS is now 100% Sangiovese, and it has firmly found its place as one of the top wines of the region.
