With the previous 2015 vintage, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate proclaimed that, “this wine sits as tall and as proud as the Colosseum in Rome or the Pyramids of Giza in its undeniable glory and beauty. It would be impossible to exaggerate its many lasting attributes and qualities.” 

While 2016 has yet to be reviewed by critics, Parker’s former protege Antonio Galloni stated, “as good (or better) as the 2015s are, the 2016s have the potential to surpass them...The 2016s I have tasted so far point to a high quality vintage that may very well turn out to be profound.” In fact, Fontodi producer Giovanni Manetti claims that this is the best vintage of Flaccianello yet.
