      “Meriggio” Bianco di Toscana Centrale IGT 2018 (BIO)

      Very appetising Sauvignon Blanc from Tuscany. Pale straw yellow, beautiful fragrance with aromas of light berries, pear and honey. Round, harmonious and fresh taste, long and aromatic. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2018 Meriggio is a very pretty white from Fontodi. In this vintage, Giovanni Manetti added 10% Trebbiano and also aged 1/3rd of the wine in terra cotta, both of which help retain a touch of freshness that is quite welcome. The combination of Panzano richness that comes so naturally, with the aromatics of Sauvignon and the energy of Trebbiano make for a compelling, super-expressive white." Vinous

      "This boasts classic varietal aromas of tropical fruit, crushed tomato vine and gooseberry. It's savory, linear and tangy, delivering juicy pineapple, grapefruit, cantaloupe, thyme and mouthwatering mineral alongside crisp acidity." Wine Enthusiast

    • "Filetta di Lamole" Chianti Classico DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      “Filetta di Lamole” Chianti Classico DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      Ruby red with bright reflections. Filetta di Lamole comes from selected Lamole vineyards of the Giovanni Manettis family and was vinified for the first time in 2015. A multi-layered, elegant Chianti Classico, which plays out its aromas nuanced and shows a fascinating structure. Cherry, slightly tarry notes, violets and forest blossoms: in this wine one recognizes the handwriting of Fontodi, and yet it is different because it is more subtle and restrained with its existing powers. A wonderful new addition to the Fontodi portfolio, which underlines the class of the winery even more. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant ruby with a slight garnet glow. Opened with slightly smoky, spicy notes of tobacco and beetroot, with blackberry in the background. On the palate much finely meshed tannin, spans a wide arch, salty and earthy in the finish, very long." Falstaff

      "The 2015 Chianti Classico Filetta di Lamole is an attractive, mid-weight wine. Game, smoke, earthiness and tobacco give the 2015 a distinctly wild flavor profile to play off the wild cherry fruit. A Chianti of understatement and nuance, the 2015 has a lot to recommend it. The warm vintage has filled out this mid-weight Chianti very nicely. As always, though, the Filetta di Lamole is a Chianti built on aromatics and structure more than fruit." Antonio Galloni

      "There's a tight grain here, with black cherry and tar flavors backed by stiff tannins. Stays mostly elegant and the finish extends." Wine Spectator

      "Fontodi's newest wine comes from his cousin's 7ha holdings in the cool zone of Lamole. The terraced vineyards sit at 600 metres above sea level on sandstone soil. Fermented in cement and aged in French oak casks, the 2015 is still backward on the nose, yet the palate reveals violets, lavender, forest blossoms and raspberry. Underneath it has a decidedly flinty edge with chalky, powdery tannins. This is captivating." Decanter

      "A floral Chianti Classico that shows fresh rose petals and stems, tulips and cranberries. The palate combines acidic flair with velvety tannins while remaining composed and vivid." James Suckling

    • Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      Chianti Classico by Giovanni Manetti offers a deep, densely woven and yet very youthful bouquet of dark and red berries and fine spicy notes. The dry, cherry-like taste with long-lasting impressions, well extracted tannin and the Sangiovese typical acidity shows clearly recognizable terroir character. Very clear, straightforward, long, always fresh and juicy, with excellent strength and balance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, deep ruby. Intense and dense nose, initially reveals notes of cloves and black truffle, then plenty of blackberry and black cherry. Hearty and grasping on the palate, shows a lot of power, opens with handy, hearty tannin, full pressure, needs some more maturity." Falstaff

      "Lustrous mid crimson. Gorgeous lifted nose of sour cherry with a hint of nutmeg. Succulent and almost a little tart on the palate with a layer of powdery tannins. Amazingly fresh for this hot vintage. I presume part of the fruit was harvested very early in order to maintain the acidity." Jancis Robinson

      "The Fontodi 2017 Chianti Classico gives the impression of being slightly mature or advanced, even now straight out of the gate. The hot and dry vintage has shaped aromas of candied cherry, dried plum, rum raisin, white chocolate and a dusty note of wet chalk. The wine is quite beautiful in terms of mouthfeel, with well-integrated alcohol and tannins that close without sharpness or astringency. This dark and sultry Sangiovese shows moderate fruit, focused mostly on dark blackberry and dried cherry." Robert Parker

      "Ripe black cherry, blackberry, iron, juniper and thyme flavors mark this solidly built red. The balance walks the line between the rich profile and the assertive tannins that deliver grip on the long finish." Wine Spectator

      "April's frost resulted in less productive vines. Giovanni Manetti saw this as an advantage in the drought-like conditions of summer. He explains that with fewer grapes, the vines suffered less stress and were able to continue ripening without shutting down. Initial scents of baked clay and dry earth make way for mint blossom and cherry. Clingy, muscular tannins wrap around dusty fruit with nuances of rust and cinnamon poking through and the acidity is remarkably racy and ripe." Decanter

      "A rich, layered Chianti Classico with intense cherry and flower character, as well as orange peel. Full-bodied with firm, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico Fontodi is a wine of extreme elegance that shows how much the house style has evolved here. A decade ago, in a warm year the Fontodi Chianti Classico would have been opulent, but these days proprietor Giovanni Manetti seeks finesse more than power, and that is exactly what comes through here. Ripe red Sangiovese fruit, rose petal, blood orange and spice infuse this racy, exotic Chianti Classico with so much character. The 2017 spent two years in oak, half in cask and half in neutral oak. I loved it." Vinous

      "Fragrant and delicious, this opens with aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, blue flower, leather, underbrush and a whiff of French oak. The full-bodied, enveloping palate delivers baked plum, Marasca cherry, licorice and a note of espresso framed in fine-grained enveloping tannins that give it a smooth texture and a weightless finesse." Wine Enthusiast

      “Filetta di Lamole” Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      Filetta di Lamole comes from selected Lamole sites of the Giovanni Manettis family and was first vinified in 2015. It is a complex, elegant Chianti Classico, which plays off its aromas with nuances and has a fascinating structure. Ruby red with bright reflections. Complex bouquet of cherry, then some tarry notes, violets and forest flowers. In this wine you can see Fontodi's signature, and yet it is different because it is more subtle and restrained with its existing powers. A wonderful new addition to the Fontodi portfolio, which underlines all the more the class and versatility of the winery. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mid ruby. Soft sour-cherry nose with minerally hints. Gripping cherry fruit that is finely balanced. Great length and style." Jancis Robinson

      "Earthy aromas of truffle, camphor and blue flower mingle with whiffs of new leather. Smooth and supple, the rounded, savory palate offers fleshy black cherry, baking spice and smooth, polished tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "Sitting at 600 metres above sea level and surrounded by forest, Fontodi's vineyards in the area of Lamole are much cooler than the estate's holdings in Panzano. Even in 2017, harvest didn't begin until October. It emerges from it shell slowly then offers an exquisite bouquet of fresh flowers and herbs. There is great focus here and an invigorating backbone of acidity piercing through dark currants. At the moment, tannins are still firm and imposing. Give this another year in the bottle." Decanter

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico Filetta di Lamole is absolutely gorgeous. In 2017, the Filetta di Lamole has a bit more body than usual because of the warmth of the year, and yet it retains its classic sense of energy and mid-weight structure. Crushed red berry, spice, mint, licorice and rose petal all open up in this super-expressive, inviting Chianti Classico." Vinous

      "Chewy and rich with attractive cherry and dried-strawberry character, as well as intense tannins. Dried flowers, too. This is traditional and structured. Very tight. Needs time to soften." James Suckling

      Ruby red, the Pinot Nero Case Via exudes a typical bouquet of wild berries and pipe tobacco, which blends harmoniously with the barrel spice. The soft, characterful taste is based on the power of the tannins and an excellent aroma structure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This fragrant red opens with aromas of violet, rose, woodland berry, tilled earth and a whiff of new leather. The polished, fruity palate delivers juicy morello cherry, red raspberry, white pepper, and mineral alongside refined tannins and bright acidity. A licorice note wraps around the lingering finish."

      “Case Via” Syrah IGT 2015 (BIO)

      Pepper and spice accents, aromas of ripe red and dark fruits and a slightly animal note characterise the precise fragrance. The perfect balance between tannin, silky elements and acidity guarantees a taste full of character and pleasing at the same time. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A rich, dark ruby with a violet shimmer. Smells of soot and black pepper, then some blueberry, spice is in the foreground. Firm and gripping on the palate, much hearty, present tannin, pithy." Falstaff

      "The 2015 Syrah Case Via is a rich, boisterous wine endowed with tremendous fruit depth and overall intensity. Black cherry, plum, new leather, spice and menthol build as this extroverted wine gains volume in the glass. Readers can expect a rich, explosive wine with tremendous near and medium term appeal." Antonio Galloni

      "Impressive aromas of crushed blackberries and slate with some black peppercorns. Medium body, very fine tannins and a delicious and classy finish. Real syrah, as always. From organically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "Syrah is the first red variety to be harvested each year at Fontodi. The 2015 Syrah Case Via opens to an inky dark appearance with purplish and blackish hues. This is a gutsy and savory wine that offers a swift kick of aromatic intensity. Dried blackberry, plum, spice, leather and bitter chocolate peel back in thick layers. Yet, despite the heat of the vintage, you might mistake this wine as being from a cooler growing season. The fruit is tight and focused. The finish offers bright acidity that is not common to Syrah from other parts of the wine world. Those cool Panzano nighttime temperatures and higher altitudes have left their mark here. Give this wine an extra year of bottle aging to allow it to flesh out further. Only 5,500 bottles were produced." Robert Parker

      “Case Via” Pinot Nero IGT 2016 (BIO)

      Strong ruby red. Pinot Nero Case Via exudes a varietal bouquet of wild berries and pipe tobacco, which blends harmoniously with the cask spice. The soft taste, full of character, is based on the power of tannin and the excellent aroma structure of Pinot Noir. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Pinot Nero Case Via is a very special expression of the grape that shows darkness and increased concentration in this beautiful vintage. This wine offers a purely Tuscan take on Pinot Nero. It pours from the bottle with a dark garnet color, showing aromas of dried cherry, smoke, tar and road paving. The wine closes with a broad, mid-weight approach. This would be a nice bottle to open for a game dinner with roasted pheasant." Robert Parker

      "Made with organically grown Pinot Nero, fermented and aged in terr-cotta amphorae, this opens with aromas of leather, scorched soil, rose petal, wild berry and game. Earthy and elegant, the aromas follow through to the smooth structured palate along with pomegranate, rhubarb, licorice and tobacco. Fresh acidity gives it youthful tension while taut fine-grained tannins lend support and finesse." Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2016 Pinot Nero Case Via is fabulous. In fact, the 2016 may very well be the finest edition of Fontodi's Pinot I have ever tasted. A wine of tremendous aromatic intensity, inner sweetness and delineation, the 2016 Pinot simply has it all. Of course, the highly favorable growing season adds quite a bit of pedigree as well. The Fontodi Pinot is not especially varietal, but it is off the charts beautiful and absolutely compelling. What a wine!" Vinous

      " Delicate aromas of cherry confit, vanilla and chocolate; pithy texture with stocky tannins, lots of body, character and solid length, berry-pepper finish, also herbal notes. With a spicy venison dish." Vinum

      "Bright ruby violet. Opens with fragrant notes of violets and cabbage florets, blueberries, then also distinctly spicy components. Wide and complex on the palate, rich spicy notes, lots of blackberry, plus handy, dense tannin." Falstaff

      "A meaty, slightly gamy red, displaying blackberry and blueberry fruit. Licorice, graphite and spicy oak notes add depth as this stays saturated. Long on the finish and balanced, but needs a bit of time to harmonize." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Syrah Case Via is powerful, dense and rich, with all of the natural intensity of this great Tuscan vintage on display. The Fontodi Syrah is not especially varietal, but it is flat-out gorgeous if taken on its own terms. Today, the Syrah is one of the most backward wines in the range. It clearly needs time for the aromatics to develop, and yet there is so much to look forward to." Vinous

      "Fabulous syrah with crushed berries and minerals, together with tea-leaf, lavender and slate character. Medium to full body. Silky and polished tannins." James Suckling

      "I love the richness, coupled by the finesse of the 2016 Syrah Case Via. This beautiful expression hits that elusive intersection of elegance and power with bullseye precision. This is an impressive effort that brings forth beautifully balanced aromas of dark fruit, blackberry, spice, leather and earthy terracotta." Robert Parker

      "The 2017 Pinot Nero Case Via is pliant and expressive. Sweet red berry, blood orange, flowers and earthy tones flesh out in the glass. As always, the Fontodi Pinot is first and foremost a wine of Chianti Classico, especially in its acid profile and overall structural feel." Vinous

      "Aromas of scorched soil, leather, rusty iron and dried botanical herb form the nose. Made with organically farmed Pinot Nero, the velvety, enveloping palate offers red berry, rhubarb, white pepper and rusty nail alongside fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

    • "Case Via" Syrah IGT 2017 (BIO)

      “Case Via” Syrah IGT 2017 (BIO)

      Strong dark ruby. Pepper and spice accents, aromas of ripe red and dark fruit and a slightly animal note characterize the precise fragrance. The perfect balance between tannin, silky elements and the acidity guarantee a taste full of character and pithy. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Syrah Case Via is dark, ample and enveloping. Blackberry, chocolate, leather, licorice and spice infuse the 2017 with striking intensity to match its plush, textured feel. The Fontodi Syrah is done in a style that emphasizes fruit and overall richness more than savoriness or minerality." Vinous

      "This is a fascinating expression of Syrah that does not fit into our preconceived expectations of the grape, whether from the Old World or the New. The Fontodi 2017 Syrah Case Via opens to a rich, inky dark appearance. I got a sweet note of butterscotch or caramel at the start, but that subsided quickly to make room for black fruit, toasted wood, campfire ash and ripe plum. The wine is not exactly varietally pure, especially if you identify with the toasty Shiraz camp of Australia or the meaty, white peppercorn camp of the Rhône. Instead, this wine has a vaguely carbonic level of energy, zest and ripe primary fruit. The fruit is dark, bold, rich and Tuscan, with a direct and sunny personality." Robert Parker

      "A rich, intense syrah with aromas and flavors of green tobacco, dried meat and rich fruit. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and polished. Delicious at the end. Serious." James Suckling

    • Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 (BIO) <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 (BIO) · MAGNUM in OWC

      Chianti Classico by Giovanni Manetti offers a deep, densely woven and yet very youthful bouquet of dark and red berries and fine spicy notes. The dry, cherry-like taste with long-lasting impressions, well extracted tannin and the Sangiovese typical acidity shows clearly recognizable terroir character. Very clear, straightforward, long, always fresh and juicy, with excellent strength and balance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, deep ruby. Intense and dense nose, initially reveals notes of cloves and black truffle, then plenty of blackberry and black cherry. Hearty and grasping on the palate, shows a lot of power, opens with handy, hearty tannin, full pressure, needs some more maturity." Falstaff

      "Lustrous mid crimson. Gorgeous lifted nose of sour cherry with a hint of nutmeg. Succulent and almost a little tart on the palate with a layer of powdery tannins. Amazingly fresh for this hot vintage. I presume part of the fruit was harvested very early in order to maintain the acidity." Jancis Robinson

      "The Fontodi 2017 Chianti Classico gives the impression of being slightly mature or advanced, even now straight out of the gate. The hot and dry vintage has shaped aromas of candied cherry, dried plum, rum raisin, white chocolate and a dusty note of wet chalk. The wine is quite beautiful in terms of mouthfeel, with well-integrated alcohol and tannins that close without sharpness or astringency. This dark and sultry Sangiovese shows moderate fruit, focused mostly on dark blackberry and dried cherry." Robert Parker

      "Ripe black cherry, blackberry, iron, juniper and thyme flavors mark this solidly built red. The balance walks the line between the rich profile and the assertive tannins that deliver grip on the long finish." Wine Spectator

      "April's frost resulted in less productive vines. Giovanni Manetti saw this as an advantage in the drought-like conditions of summer. He explains that with fewer grapes, the vines suffered less stress and were able to continue ripening without shutting down. Initial scents of baked clay and dry earth make way for mint blossom and cherry. Clingy, muscular tannins wrap around dusty fruit with nuances of rust and cinnamon poking through and the acidity is remarkably racy and ripe." Decanter

      "A rich, layered Chianti Classico with intense cherry and flower character, as well as orange peel. Full-bodied with firm, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico Fontodi is a wine of extreme elegance that shows how much the house style has evolved here. A decade ago, in a warm year the Fontodi Chianti Classico would have been opulent, but these days proprietor Giovanni Manetti seeks finesse more than power, and that is exactly what comes through here. Ripe red Sangiovese fruit, rose petal, blood orange and spice infuse this racy, exotic Chianti Classico with so much character. The 2017 spent two years in oak, half in cask and half in neutral oak. I loved it." Vinous

      "Fragrant and delicious, this opens with aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, blue flower, leather, underbrush and a whiff of French oak. The full-bodied, enveloping palate delivers baked plum, Marasca cherry, licorice and a note of espresso framed in fine-grained enveloping tannins that give it a smooth texture and a weightless finesse."

    About the winemakersfontodiTuscany | Chianti
    fontodi

    What do the dome of Florence Cathedral and some of Tuscany's best red wines have in common? The Manetti family. Even today, the Manetti family is still a leader in the production of terracotta. While the older brother Marco is taking care of this old tradition, Giovanni Manetti has brought the Fontodi winery to new splendour. Already at the age of 16 he started to help out and planted his first vines in the legendary vineyards below Panzano.

    The most famous street in Tuscany is the Chiantigiana, which connects Florence with Siena. Around 70 kilometres of bends, mostly through vineyards. Approximately in the middle of the route is Panzano. High up on the crest of a huge, south-facing hollow in the landscape, which looks like an oversized clam full of vines. The inhabitants call it "Conca d'Oro", the golden shell. However, this comes from the time when wheat was still cultivated here, because the ripe wheat in the glow of the afternoon sun made the whole natural amphitheatre shine golden. Today it is a rich green of the vines that only shines gold in late autumn when the leaves of Sangiovese change colour. The best view is when you come from the south and drive up the serpentines. Exactly where every wine lover stops to take his photo of Panzano, the entrance to the Fontodi winery branches off to the right on a hill with a magnificent all-round view.

    An impressive location, for the Chianti-Classico area quite high ascending and relatively steep, up to almost 500 m above sea level. One of the best locations for Sangiovese at all, not only means Giovanni Manetti. Sangiovese needs a lot of sunlight during the day, good ventilation and cool nights in order to become elegant. This is perfectly given here. In addition there is a soil from Galestro, as the limestone marl is called here. The soil is covered with ancient, brittle slate, which, however, deeply roots the vines and makes the wines mineral. It is not for nothing that Fontodi's flagship wine, the Flaccianello, is always distinguished as one of the very best pure Sangiovese wines in Italy.

    Giovanni Manetti could also be a diplomat. His charming, open manner has made it possible to create a model project in Italian viticulture: "Panzano sostenibile" - sustainable Panzano, because if you cultivate biodynamically, it makes sense for your neighbours to do the same," Manetti smiles and puts his light under the bushel. Anyone who knows Italy knows how difficult it is to persuade several entrepreneurs to take joint action. Today practically all wineries with more than 500 ha around Panzano are organic or in conversion. This was probably one of the reasons why Giovanni Manetti was elected president of the Consorzio Chianti Classico, which is why in recent years there has been a clear trend towards organic cultivation in the entire Chianti region.

    In addition to the extensive work in the vineyards, which now occupy 80 hectares of the 130 hectares of land, Manetti built a new cellar, which, on three floors underground, allows the grapes to be processed on a natural gradient without pumps. State-of-the-art equipment, from steel and wooden fermenting stands to various sizes of wooden barrels, is a matter of course in order to allow each variety and each layer to mature specifically. Some of these are terracotta amphorae from his brother's production. These are still rather experiments in small quantities, but the quality already makes many critics curious, one can be curious. The quality fanatic also leaves nothing to chance when it comes to oenological care, because none other than Franco Bernabei has been a partner for many years and is now supported by his son Marco.

    In addition to Chianti Classico, Vigna del Sorbo, the Gran Selezione des Chianti from the single vineyard and the Flaccianello della Pieve, the three top wines from Sangiovese, which have already achieved up to 100 Parker points, the Syrah Case Via with its fine flavoring is always a real eye-catcher. The Pinot Nero of the same name is probably also one of the highest rated in the region and the Sauvignon blanc Meriggio is a fine white counterpart if you want fish instead of Bistecca.  SUPERIORE.DE

    "The big news in Chianti Classico these past few months is that Fontodi's Giovanni Manetti has been elected as the new president of the Consorzio Chianti Classico. He takes the reins from Sergio Zingarelli who was president for two very successful mandates that included the introduction of the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione category. I am very happy to hear of this change, mostly because I firmly believe that Giovanni's genteel and non-confrontational personality will allow for a moment of reflection and unity in a growers' association that has seen its share of controversy and infighting over the years. A mandate of tranquility would be the least we should expect of this new presidency. The most we can expect, however, is a stronger voice from growers over mapping and the delineation of subzones within the greater appellation, something I have been advocating. Giovanni Manetti and Fontodi represent the pinnacle of quality that can be achieved in this part of Tuscany. That he has become a symbolic head of the region only brings more prestige and pedigree to an appellation that demands our highest respect and admiration." Robert Parker (2018)
