1 x Fontella Chianti DOCG 2015 (Italy)

AWARDED 90/100 POINTS: James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

A glorious Chianti, Italy's best-known red wine! A region boasts some of the world's finest wines as well as fantastic food-friendly bargains that somehow always seem a little more 'grown-up' than most other comparably priced quaffers!

Fontella is a traditional Chianti, being predominantly Sangiovese with a splash of Canaiolo and Colorino. Medium-bodied and easy-drinking in style, it is stainless steel fermented to maximise freshness and fruit expression. The resulting soft, harmonious flavours of dark cherry, plum, chocolate and marzipan make this wine taste like it could be three times the price.

"A delectably expressed tempranillo; it is wonderfully fruited and richly savoury at the same time showing dark fruit, charcuterie, mushroom, leather and toasted nut characters on the nose, leading to a generously flavoured palate that is beautifully weighted and silky. The wine is complex and engaging with a lingering spicy finish. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
