Notes from the Winemaker:

All Fontodi wines are produced from grapes coming from their own vineyards, picked by hand, chosen with care and vinified in a way that exalts the character of the vines and the territory. The Fontodi Oil “Bio” is produced from its own olives which are delicately pressed the same day as the harvest in order to preserve all the freshness and the fragrance of the fruit.

Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Rich, packed with cherry, leather, dark chocolate and wild herb aromas and flavors. Dense and vibrant, with a long, mouthwatering finish that picks up a graphite edge. Best from 2020 through 2032."—B.S.(June 2018)

91 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"Fontodi's 90ha of vineyards are located in the Panzano's Conca d'Oro, one of the driest stretches of the Chianti Classico. Owned by the Manetti family since 1968, the property is totally self-sustaining and has been farmed organically since 1990. Exuberantly youthful, it exhibits plush black cherry, thyme and liquorice alongside a refreshing juiciness, despite the warm vintage. The tannins are quite serious and this could use another year in the bottle. Drinking Window 2019 - 2029" - Michaela Morris (Feb 11, 2018)

93 Points - James Suckling (2014 Vintage):
"A red with berry, chili powder and spice that follows through to a full body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish. Fontodi doesn't miss a stride in this difficult vintage. Excellent. Drink now." - (October 20, 2017)

92 - Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2014 Vintage):
"Fontodi's 2014 Chianti Classico is one of the most finessed vintages of this wine in recent memory. The combination of the cool growing conditions and a move toward larger oak casks has resulted in a deep yet translucent wine of notable pedigree and class. There is plenty of the typical Panzano richness, but less of the overt weight that has characterized some recent vintages." - Antonio Galloni (Jan 2018)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2014 Vintage):
"Made with organically grown Sangiovese, this elegantly structured red offers enticing aromas of woodland berry, exotic spice and wild herb. Vibrant and savory, the medium-bodied, youthfully austere palate boasts tart cherry, wild raspberry, clove and licorice supported by bright acidity and taut, refined tannins. It's already tempting but will be even better in a few years. Drink 2019–2026." - Kerin O’Keefe (3/1/2018)
