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.
"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."
"This has grip and fine Sangiovese character, evoking bitter cherry, tobacco, leather and spice flavors. A harmonious wine, lingering with an aftertaste of tobacco and mineral. Best from 2013 through 2020. 10,000 cases made."
