100 Points Vinous - The 2018 Flaccianello della Pieve is another stellar wine from Fontodi. It is the richest Flaccianello ever made (in terms of dry extract) with elevated acidity that trails the 2016 by just a touch but it does not taste like that at all. Dark cherry violet lavender spice mocha and graphite build with a bit of time in the glass. Like the Sorbo the 2018 Flaccianello is not a wine of size as in most previous years but rather a wine that exudes vibrancy energy and class from start to finish. I absolutely loved it.

98 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Generally speaking I have reservations concerning the 2018 vintage that saw intermittent periods of hot and cold with some rain thrown in at the end of the growing cycle. The 2018 Flaccianello della Pieve blasted straight through any lingering doubt and is the result of a deft winemaking hand. This is a phenomenal and proudly confident vintage of the estate's top Sangiovese which represents a blend of organic fruit from the best parcels. The wine's personality reveals brooding darkness and austerity and these impressions are reinforced by savory tones of cigar smoke and earthy leather. The core of the wine is tight and richly concentrated with generous blackberry and plum. The velvety tannins are integrated but still youthful and grippy. You'll definitely need to give this elegant wine more time in the bottle. Production is an ample 60000 bottles.

98 Points James Suckling - Incredible depth and power to this with a solid core of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. Greatness in the making.

96 Points Wine Spectator - Ripe black cherry black currant and blackberry fruit is beautifully displayed on the harmonious structure in this red. Violet iron and juniper notes add depth while the aftertaste gets lift from the lively acidity and dusty tannins. Sangiovese. Best from 2024 through 2043. From Italy.
