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.

Bright red. Vibrant raspberry and candied cherry aromas are strongly underscored by violet and vanilla. Juicy and dense on entry, then soft and creamy in the middle, with sweet flavors of red cherry, redcurrant, licorice and minerals. This wonderfully balanced wine finishes long and smooth, with enough ripe acidity to maintain its shape, and lingering mineral and peppery nuances. Beautiful wine. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 2010, Ian D'Agata

WA 91pts. - WS 91pts. - WE 91pts. - Winemaker Notes - Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico precisely in the valley which lies south of the town of Panzano and is called the 'Conca d Oro' (the golden shell) because of its amphitheatre shape. A genuine and characteristc 'Terroir', famous for centuries for its tradition of quality wine cultivation, thanks to a unique combination of high altitude, calcar clayschist soil, lots of light, and a fantastic micro-climate warm and dry with a marked difference in day and night-time temperatures.

Soft, supple and inviting, this is a beautifully executed Chianti Classico that puts as much emphasis on the quality of aromas as it does on the feel the wine imparts in the mouth. It's polished and plush with lingering notes of red fruit, spice and ... Wine Enthusiast. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Fontodi Chianti Classico 750ml
