About the Winery

Fontodi

Established in the heart of the picturesque Chianti Classico region, Fontodi winery is famed for its superb production of high-quality organic wines. Nestled in the magnificent Conca d’Oro valley, this esteemed family-run estate enjoys a perfect, sun-drenched location that naturally lends itself to the cultivation of exceptional Sangiovese grapes.

The Manetti family, who have owned the estate since 1969, consistently uphold a long-standing commitment to organic farming practices. Equally as impressive is their dedication to utilising traditional winemaking methods. Considering these enduring principles, it is hardly surprising that Fontodi has earned a reputation as a prime example of Tuscan winemaking at its most authentic and enchanting.

Despite their adherence to time-honoured techniques, the family also embraces modernity in a bid to produce the best possible wines. Under the guiding hand of the winemaker, Giovanni Manetti, Fontodi favours dense plantings and long fermentations to exploit the full expression of the precious grapes.

Among Fontodi's renowned offerings include the enchanting Flaccianello della Pieve and a premium selection of Chianti Classicos, each wine is a testament to the winery’s unyielding commitment to quality. While these wines have been widely recognised for their elegance and superb structure, their distinctive Tuscan character, brimming with dark cherry, plums and earthy undertones remains undoubtedly their signature trait.
