Reviews & Scores
Fontodi's newest wine comes from his cousin's 7ha holdings in the cool zone of Lamole. The terraced vineyards sit at 600 metres above sea level on sandstone soil. Fermented in cement and aged in French oak casks, the 2015 is still backward on the nose, yet the palate reveals violets, lavender, forest blossoms and raspberry. Underneath it has a decidedly flinty edge with chalky, powdery tannins. This is captivating.
DC92
A floral Chianti Classico that shows fresh rose petals and stems, tulips and cranberries. The palate combines acidic flair with velvety tannins while remaining composed and vivid. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
JS92
The 2015 Chianti Classico Filetta di Lamole is an attractive, mid-weight wine. Game, smoke, earthiness and tobacco give the 2015 a distinctly wild flavor profile to play off the wild cherry fruit. A Chianti of understatement and nuance, the 2015 has a lot to recommend it. The warm vintage has filled out this mid-weight Chianti very nicely. As always, though, the Filetta di Lamole is a Chianti built on aromatics and structure more than fruit. 
VM90
There's a tight grain here, with black cherry and tar flavors backed by stiff tannins. Stays mostly elegant and the finish extends. Best from 2020 through 2028.
