A selection of the best grapes from Fontodi's highest altitude parcels in Panzano's Conca d'Oro.  Macerated cherry and blackberry compote are nuanced by dried thyme and grilled fennel. New wood adds hints of vanilla and spice box. The palate is robust and firm, though the tannins are refined and tangy acidity brightens the whole. An excellent showing from this challenging year. - Michaela Morris, Decanter

Fontodi is one of Chianti Classico's great names, and Giovanni Manetti one of its living legends. Flaccianello and Vigna del Sorbo have become two of Italy's very greatest wines under his stewardship. Even Fontodi's "basic" Chianti Classico is a marvel of terroir and sheer Sangiovese pleasure. It's a wine from great parcels in a single village (Panzano) in one of Italy's great regions; if this were Burgundy, it would be an allocated superstar just a notch below the Grand Crus. Because it's Tuscany, we can offer the wine to everyone today with great discounts and no limits on how much you can buy.

There are winds of change blowing in Chianti Classico: rather than masking the vibrancy and purity of Sangiovese with heavy French oak (or worse, with the addition of French varietals), many winemakers have chosen to wholly embrace this noble grape. Few estates can claim responsibility for this renaissance more than Fontodi, a bastion of organic farming and a champion of Sangiovese’s role as the grape of Chianti.
