This Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. is produced exclusively with the Sangiovese variety of grapevine, grown in various vineyards owned by the company. It is matured in oak barrels and casks of various dimensions for about twelve months, followed by a brief period of refinement in bottles. It is a ruby colour with a strong winey aroma that has a hint of sweet violets. It tastes dry, well-balanced and flavoursome with light tannins.

The producer

The Fontodi estate is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico production area, or more precisely, in the valley that begins south of Panzano, an area known as "Conca D'oro", or "The Golden Bowl", for the position of the land, which is largely given over to wine-making. It is not by chance that Fontodi wines were already famous at the beginning of the twentieth century, as numerous honours at several international wine meetings attest. The Fontodi estate has been run by the Manetti family since 1968. For many centuries the family had been dedicated to another activity that is typical of the Chianti production area, the manufacture of terracotta paving stones. It has been with a full awareness of the strong ties to the land that in recent years the company has dedicated itself to rediscovering from the origin the identity the Chianti Classico wines. The wines produced have a perfect combination of well-judged balance and complexity. This combination comes from both the adoption of appropriate methods of cultivation and more modern wine-making techniques. The research focused in particular on the Sangiovese species of grapevine, with a brief to express the vine's remarkable potential in the context of the specific conditions at Panzano. In many respects, this is potential that had never before been fully explored. The result of this careful and complex work is a strain of very high quality Chianti Classico wines, as well as the introduction of wines such as Flaccianello della Pieve and Vigna del Sorbo.
