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.
'The 2014 Chianti Classico is just hitting the market now. This is a light and delicate expression of Sangiovese that delivers floral notes of lavender and violet that are characteristic of a cooler vintage. The wine’s appearance is one mild tone lighter in terms of color and overall concentration. Keeping in theme, the mouthfeel is beautifully driven by tonic freshness and polished elegance.'
Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
