Fontodi’s owner-winemaker, Giovanni Manetti, has long considered Chianti Classico’s Lamole region special, and this wine proves him right. 2014 is the inaugural vintage of Filetta di Lamole Chianti Classico, and the wine bursts with succulent cherries and berries, piquant minerals and herbs, and kisses of loam and pressed wildflowers. Bright acidity propels this intense wine, yet its fine-grained tannins cling to the cheeks to blanket the palate with a textured, silky feel. This is a very elegant Chianti Classico that showcases Sangiovese’s finesse, rather than its raw power. Deriving from Lamole’s 17-acre, sandy-soiled Filetta vineyard, the grapes for this wine ferment in concrete, and the wine ages in oak casks for 15 months before being bottled.
