Region: Toscana


History

The Fontodi estate has been run since 1968 by the Manetti family who for centuries have pursued another typically Tuscan profession: terracotta ceramics.
The Fontodi estate lies in the very heart of Chianti Classico, in the winding valley following on from the south side of Panzano, also known as the ‘Golden basin'/'Conca d'Oro'.
Renowned for centuries for its dedication to quality, owed in large part to a combination of an elevated altitude, schistous earth, a great deal of light and a fantastic microclimate (warm and dry, with a very diverse range in temperature).
A combination of dedication to quality, and a strong connection to the land dating back generations guarantees an ongoing family commitment to producing wines truly reflective of the great potential of the Sangiovese grape.
