4.5 stars "Drank w/ 97 Insignia & 99 Valdicava Brunello. Fontodi was the most discreet of the 3 and the wine I thought needed the most time. Beautiful wine, complex and perfectly balanced. Perhaps the most subtle of the 3"

97 points "Monumental, with masses of blackberry, coffee, berry and cherry aromas. Full-bodied, with layers of ripe tannins. Goes on and on. Builds on the palate. I have never tasted a greater wine from here. Better than 1997. Best after 2007. 4,000 cases made. (JS)" Best 2008-2027
