"The 2001 Fontalloro vies with the legendary 1985 of the house as the best in its distinguished history, packed and powerful with riper and sweeter fruit, rich sensations of dark chocolate, licorice, and road tar, and a dense, expanding finish which promises over a dozen years of high-class drinking ahead."

Pasta > Tomato-base
Strong and elegant Sangiovese-based wine. I found this 2001 vintage at a small restaurant/winery. The Sangiovese retains its tart characteristics, going well with pasta dishes.
