The Winery

Fontodi

Fontodi has belonged since 1968 to the Manetti family for centuries dedicated to another typically Chiantigian activity: the production of the famous terracottas. Precisely in the name of this strong link with the territory and with great passion for quality, the company has successfully addressed a more and more careful cultivation of the vineyards and a deeper knowledge of the potential of Sangiovese in the territory of Panzano.

4/5

It was a surprise for my best friend.
Strawberry red colour. Candy aromas. Oily, unctuous.
We had it with a birthday cake.
