Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico precisely in the valley which lies south of the town of Panzano which is called the “Conca d’Oro” (the Golden Shell) because of its amphitheatre shape. A genuine terroir, famous for over the centuries for its tradition of quality wine production. Fontodi is a certified organic estate which extends over 130 hectares, of which about 70 are planted with vines. The type of agriculture practiced is inspired and guided by the principles of respect of nature and sustainability. Not only are no chemicals used, but ongoing efforts are made to maximize the existing resources of the estate resulting in wines that are better, more pure, and a truer expression of the grape and its terroir. Fontodi has garnered very significant critical acclaim for producing some the highest calibre and most sought after wines from Chianti Classico.
