Description

The heart of the Chianti Classico in the glass

Since 1968, in the heart of Panzano in Chianti, Fontodi is synonymous with quality; a unique terroir, high altitude, thermal excursions and a man, Giovanni Manetti, are the ideal combination for these 80 hectares of vineyards, from which come to life the wines that for Chianti have shown and continue to show the way to go. Supporter of a biological and self-sufficient cultivation regime, Manetti has chosen to operate in total respect of nature, fertilizing the land with manure coming from the small farm of Chianina cattle he owns, thus eliminating the use of chemical products. The result of this joyful combination of elements is perfectly decipherable in the extraordinary wines produced by the company, which continue to gather support all over the world.

Intense ruby red with purple reflections, very bright. The nose reveals small red fruits in jam, slight hints of violet and sweet vanilla notes, combined with hints of tobacco and leather. Taking a sip it is full and firm, with tannins in evidence but of great quality, together with a typical freshness of the vine and here of great gustatory thickness, which accompanies a long and pleasant persistence of balsamicity.

Excellent with main courses of meat, also tasty, such as stews and roasts, or with an inevitable Florentine!
