Appearance: Ruby red color with good intensity and richness in color tones. Bouquet: Complex aromatic varieties, with accentuated notes of tobacco and wet earth (but also earth dust) and hints of black currant, blackberry and licorice. Palate: It reflects a good tannicity and consistency of tannins, medium soft. Good consistency, structure and aftertaste breed. Excellent longevity in large vintages.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Fontalloro is the best vintage of this landmark wine that I have tasted thus far. This is a very elegant vintage, with more volume in the mouth and precise notes of tar, licorice, camphor ash, resin and Indian spice. In a race between the highly competitive 2015 and 2016 vintages, I give a slight advantage to this wine. The warmer 2015 vintage shows more richness and exuberant fruit. However, this wine from 2016 offers a more focused and chiseled delivery. I am hopeful that this wine will continue to evolve and sharpen as it ages in the bottle. This is a beautiful wine to put aside in your cellar for ten years or more.

James SucklingAmazing aromas of licorice, wet earth, orange peel and lavender. Full body, tight and super compact and polished. Goes on for minutes. Clearly great. Better in 2021, but already a star.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of dark-skinned fruit, exotic spice, blue flower and menthol shape the nose. It's linear, focused and ethereally elegant, offering succulent Morello cherry, raspberry compote and star anise alongside fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance. Drink 2020-2028.
