The Fontodi Estate is one of the crown jewels of the region, with a portfolio of stunning wines made from the native sangiovese grape (This is the estate behind the iconic "Flaccianello" IGT). Fontodi wines, year after year, receive numerous accolades from the wine press and are sought after by the most ardent collectors of Italian wines. The reason is simple: the estate's non-interventionist approach to winemaking showcases the unique and viticulturally rich terroir of the land.
Known as the "Conca d'Oro (the golden shell), Fontodi is an amphitheater-shaped property located in the valley south of the town of Panzano that benefits from a high elevation, clay/shist oil, generous light, and warm, dry weather with wide diurnal variations in temperature.*
94 points & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Delicate aromas recalling scorched earth and truffle mingle with mocha and botanical herbs on this 100% sangiovese. Elegant and enveloping, the supple palate features fleshy plum, orange zest, and baking spice before an espresso finish. Soft tannins offer supple support." (5/1/22)
