Chianti Classico Fontodi (37.5cl) 2017
The Manetti family has owned Fontodi since 1968 but has been in Chianti for centuries. Their primary business is still the production of Chianti’s finest terracotta at their factory in Ferrone. Their 90 hectares of vineyard have been converted to organic viticulture and they are now following biodynamic principles.
The Chianti Classico is a blend from different plots within the estate vineyards in the south-facing amphitheatre known as Conca d’Oro (Golden Shell) in Panzano. 2017 was a low-yielding year, and the quality shows throug – great depth of flavour with juicy fruit and supple tannins and a silky-smooth texture. Perfect with steak or roast lamb, and Pecorino is the perfect cheese match.
