Chianti, day 2: harvest at Fontodi

Spent the day in Chianti Classico, with a presentation by the Constorzio in the morning, followed by visits to producers. The highlight was catching the vintage in action at Fontodi, and then tasting the wines, which were simply fantastic. Sangiovese rocks (when it's handled well, anyway). Here are some pictures. Now it's very late, I have an early start, and I have to get to bed.

What's the take on the 2008 vintage so far?

Fontodi rocks! Great Classico, outstanding Vigna del Sorbo (the '04 is immense) and sublime Flaccianelo. Curious though, that the Riserva VdS has 10% Cab S while the Flacciannelo is 100% Sangiovese. Gives us your tasting notes quickly Jamie!

Sangiovese rocks with Italian food.
