« Flaccianello associe toutes les caractéristiques sauvages du Vieux Monde du Sangiovese avec les techniques de vinification modernes de celui qui doit être le meilleur domaine de la Toscane de nos jours.

Ce vin est comme un apprivoisement et un entrainement d’un bel étalon mustang noir qui a passé juste assez de temps dans la nature pour conserver son tempérament de feu.

Ce vin s'ouvre sur des notes sauvages de baies et cassis, clou de girofle, lavande, violette et un soupçon de chocolat mi-amer.

Je me demande d’où vient la grâce de ce vin alors que je me réjouis dès la première gorgée. Souple et fraîche en bouche mais pleine de chaleureuses saveurs qui illuminent le palais avec de brillantes notes de cerises, de fraises et de terre mouillée.

Le vin arrive en bouche comme une vague de cassis, de mûres et de fraises sucrées tout en s’équilibrant sur des tanins purs et une pincée de chêne neuf vanillé.

La finale... oh la finale... Un bon Sangiovese ne déçoit en aucun cas et ce Flaccianello dure à tout jamais. Enfin il fond sous la lumière de notes herbacées… une pointe de menthe... un trait de basilic... Puis il disparait comme une étoile filante en un clignement d’œil dans un ciel étoilé. » - #8 Wine Spectator Top 100 - 2010

Robert Parker (RP) : 100 Points (2016)
Fontodi's 2016 Flaccianello della Pieve is a masterpiece. This review represents a composite of notes from two separate tasting sessions, one at the winery and a second bottle tasted repeatedly over the course of 24 hours at my own pace. In the case of the second sample, it ended up in a blind flight next to the 2016 Masseto, and as beautiful as that Merlot-based wine is, this wine paints an even more beautiful portrait of a perfect Tuscan landscape, thanks to that tangy Sangiovese typicity. This vintage shows amazing depth and poise, with a sheer sense of elegance that comes from the undisputed quality of fruit achieved in this balanced vintage. The bouquet opens to dark cherry, blue flower and tilled earth. The tannins are taut, almost crunchy, and the wine offers profound pedigree and persistence that is driven by the evident acidity. That depth is what stands out most. Until the 2013 vintage, Flaccianello was aged in barrique for 24 months. After that vintage, six months of the total aging time is spent in botte instead. This 2016 vintage includes a small part from clay amphorae for the first time. This slight change in the relationship of wine to barrel size has resulted in a more elegant and finessed wine. That point is especially underlined in this vintage. Because of cool spring temperatures during the flowering, yields were reduced by 20% in 2016 compared to 2015. Some 65,000 bottles were made.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 100 Points (2016)
The 2016 Flaccianello della Pieve is off the charts. Fresh, vibrant and explosive, with tremendous overall intensity, the 2016 possesses magnificent richness, with sumptuous fruit purity and simply unreal balance. Creamy, silky tannins add to the wine's sophistication and overall polish. The 2016 is dark, inky and powerful, but not at all heavy. Giovanni Manetti gave the 2016 18 months in French oak (75-80% new), followed by 6 months in cask. This is the first vintage in which a small amount (2%) of the wine was aged in amphora. In a word: stunning! Don't miss it. (AG) (8/2019)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 97 Points (2016)
Ripe, with mulberry, plum, black cherry, mineral and spice flavors, this red is both lush and firmly structured. Complex, well-defined and persistent, courtesy of the racy acidity. Though balanced, this needs a few years to really knit together. Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2040. 4,300 cases made

James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2016)
Dark cherries, blackcurrants, brambleberries, eucalyptus, vanilla, tar, sandalwood and dried violets are the calling cards on the nose. This is certainly a very refined and delicate Flaccianello, that weaves its way through fresh dark fruit and layers of intricately wrought tannins. Delicious now, but better in 2022. (4/2019)

Decanter (DCT) : 96 Points (2015)
2015 was a relief after 2014. Manetti describes it as an almost perfect vintage: the summer was warmer than usual with lots of sunshine, but it was never too hot and rain fell at the right moments. It's surprisingly open on the nose, where sweet earth, dark cherry, grilled thyme and baking spice aromas unfold. The palate is full and voluptuous, with succulent fruits coated by firm tannins. This just needs time to take shape and it will reveal its more subtle complexities after a few years in the cellar.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 95 Points (2014)
Balancing structure and finesse, this full-bodied red delivers aromas and flavors of black-skinned berry, licorice, exotic spice and raspberry compote. Tightly knit, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity provide the age-worthy backbone. Drink 2020–2024. Cellar Selection.
