The long time Italian correspondent for Wine Spectator stated: “Fontodi is considered as one of the best Tuscan collectibles” When we asked the owner about the quality of the wine, the vintner says “it’s all about vineyard location. All the vineyards are south-facing, allowing ample sunlight for sangiovese to mature to perfection.” I say perfection is pretty key here and all the critics seem to agree! Only a few cases to go around...
About the wine
The Manetti family, which has run the Fontodi winery since 1968, is a true champion of sangiovese. What has been quietly evolving at this 200-acre estate nestled in the “golden basin” known as Conca d’Ora, south of Panzano in Chianti Classico, is its progressive pursuit to seek the sangiovese grape’s fullest expression.

"Long finish… one of the best I’ve tasted."
97 pts, James Suckling
"What a nose of clay, earth, crushed stones, rose petals, red licorice, baking spices, tar and Chinese spices. The level of sophistication to the red-fruited core, laser-sharp acidity and polished tannins, which grip and caress the palate, make this the greatest Chianti Classico ever made by Fontodi. From organically grown grapes. A long, long finish. Drink in 2022."

"This is concentrated and monolithic, with blackberry and black cherry flavors augmented by tar, tobacco and iron notes. Offers excellent potential, but will need time to absorb the tannins. Powerful, showing fine length."
