Fontodi

The Manetti family has owned Fontodi since 1969 but has been in Chianti for centuries. Though they have always made wine, their primary business is still the production of Chianti's finest terracotta at their factory in Ferrone. Giovanni Manetti has run the property since 1980and ensures the wines are as meticulously made as the vineyards are immaculately tended.

Currently there are 80 hectares of vineyard, 90% of which are Sangiovese, and they are situated in the prime 'conca d'oro' (golden shell) of Panzano. Over the past six years the vineyards have been converted to organic viticulture. Giovanni is now following biodynamic principles to obtain the best quality fruit.
