The name Fontodi comes from the Latin "Fons- odi" and dates back to Roman times since when vines have been cultivated in this region. Additionally sixteenth century documents providing evidence of vinification on the holdings and farm of "Case Via" have recently been found. From the beginning of the nineteen hundreds the wines of Fontodi have been exported all over the world, receiving many awards for their quality at important exhibitions. The Manetti family, who originate from the Chianti region, have been devoted to the production of traditional terracotta for over three centuries. In 1968 the family brought Fontodi and ever since has endeavoured to improve methods of production and to acquire new sites Read less

96 Points "Manetti's 2004 Flaccianello della Pieve (100% Sangiovese aged in 100% new oak) is simply stunning. Fresh and vibrant, it offers compelling aromatics and endless layers of fruit that develop in the glass, with superb length on the palate and gorgeous overall balance. Although it is still holding back much today, make no mistake about it, Flaccianello is one of Italy's blue-chip wines and the 2004 is a profound vintage for this wine. In order to enjoy its full range of expression readers will have to wait at least another five years after which it will provide memorable drinking to age 25, perhaps longer. A recent bottle of the 1982 was still full of life when tasted a few months ago. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029." Wine Advocate, #171 Jun 2007, Antonio Galloni 95 Points "Gorgeous aromas of blackberry, light toasty oak, cream and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Wonderful. Sangiovese. Best after 2010. 4,000 cases made." Wine Spectator, Oct 31, 2007, James Suckling
