Fontodi, Chianti Classico (Tuscany, Italy) 2010

($35, Vinifera Imports): Combine a top vintage, 2010 in Tuscany, and a top Chianti Classico producer, Fontodi, and you get, not surprisingly, a top wine.  There is plenty of deep red, almost black fruit flavors here and enough earthy spice and acidity to remind you this is still Chianti Classico — a very complex one at that.  Not an aperitivo type wine, it pairs well with a hearty pasta dish.
