Terrazze San Leolino Gran Selezione 2019 Fontodi
€69,00 incl VAT: €83,49
|Type of Wine||
Fontodi’s brand spanking new Terrazze San Leolino Gran Selezione is a stunner. San Leolino was recognised locally as a cru site 200 years ago. The recently renewed terraces sit at 450 metres in Panzano but – unlike Fontodi’s Vigna del Sorbo, which is characterised by Galestro – the soil here is calcareous Alberese. Though recently bottled, this is forthright in its earthy, stony, mineral-like aromas. Elegant yet profound, the palate demonstrates decisive rose, red cherry and long-chained, enveloping tannins, finishing with a tangy salinity. It is still very buttoned up but has so much promise.
