Description

Very deep crimson. Volcanically explosive on the nose. Tight and dry on the finish. Real drive. Very linear with a pretty dry finish. Desperately needs food – so it's lucky I'm enjoying this at the famous Dario meat restaurant in Panzano. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com (18)

Fontodi is located in the hills south of the town of Panzano in the heart of the Chianti Classico region.This 90-hectare estate was in a run down and derelict state when it was acquired by Domiziano and Dino Manetti in 1968. They totally replanted the vineyards and renovated the winemaking facilities and today Fontodi is recognised as one of the finest producers in the region.

The estate is now run by Macro and Gioivanni Manetti, ably assisted by winemaker Franco Bernabei. Its benchmark Chianti Classico is made from a blend of Sangiovese and Canaiolo and aged in large oak barrels whereby the Chianti Classico Riserva has a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, and a portion is aged in small French barriques. Its finest wine is the 100% Sangiovese, Flacianello della Pieve.
