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

100% Sangiovese Tea and tobacco emerge on the nose followed by extracted, heavy carob laced aromas of roasted fruit. Big, powerful, and inelegant in the mouth, this is all chunky and showing rich, roasted fruit with harsh tannins. Raw, unbalanced and surprisingly bad. tasted twice with similar results. 70pts

The nose showed cherry sauce with Tuscan dust, spicy notes, hints of mushroom and citrus. On the palate, it was focused with refined red fruits and inner floral notes. The finish was clean with pure red fruits and hints of structure. This was easily one of the best entry-level Chianti I’ve tasted this year.

From 1.5 L, popped and poured. Marked notes of fennel & anise on top of fine, dried black cherry, underbrush, and a subtle richness at the core. Elegant, but not at all thin. Medium weight on the palate with more dried black cherry, leather, and some minerality. Fine tannins and savory notes on the finish. Well balanced, solid, and easy to drink. 90 Pts.

Dark fruits of plum and maybe some black cherries, laced with energetic acidity, fine grained tannins on the finish. A well balanced and delicious new world style classico that's easy going, but with finesse, and integrity. At around $25, i'll look to buy this in bulk.

This is a solid Chianti Classico, with beautiful plum, berry and milk chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a long juicy finish. Really excellent. Fontodi is one of the stars of the region. Made from organic grapes. Drink now.
