This wine is the flagship offering of Giovanni Manetti’s Fontodi winery. Unequalled in quality by any other wine of its type in recent years, this 100-percent Sangiovese contains notes of tobacco, rich soil, licorice, and ripe black fruit. This particular vintage appears to be bound for greatness. ($100)
