Description

History

Fontodi has been owned by the Manetti family since 1968, which instead comes entrepreneurially from the famous terracotta sector. The decision to also invest in wine and specifically in the Chianti Classico of Panzano derives precisely from this strong link with the Tuscan territory and from the desire to enhance the quality production of the region’s excellence, especially Sangiovese. The company is certified organic and covers 170 hectares of land of which just over 80 are planted with vineyards. All the agriculture practiced adheres to principles of respect for the vineyard, the environment and nature and sustainability is the watchword in Fontodi: we try not only to avoid in the most categorical way the use of chemical products harmful to the health of the environment, but rather to use as much material as possible from the company itself. For example, the vineyards are fertilized using a compost of pruning residues and manure that comes from the internal breeding of Chianinas. The cellar is very modern and develops vertically in order to exploit the force of gravity for carrying out the various stages of vinification which allows to maintain a greater integrity of the fruits and to obtain “healthier”, fragrant and intense wines.

Grapes used

Sangiovese 100%

Production method

After harvesting, destemming and crushing, the grapes are placed in stainless steel containers where they ferment thanks to the presence of indigenous yeasts naturally present on the skins. Fermentation on the latter lasts for at least 2 weeks with frequent punching down. After this procedure, the wine ages for 24 months in Allier and Troncais French oak barriques, with a further period of rest in the bottle before being placed on the market.

Alcohol content

13.5%

Tasting notes

Intense and bright ruby red colour. On the nose notes of nutmeg, berries, currants, licorice, undergrowth, tobacco and floral references. In the mouth a great freshness emerges but overall in balance with the tannins, the good body, the spicy notes and the persistent finish.

Possible combinations

The wine can be combined with red meat dishes, game, aged cheeses and mushrooms.
