Country of origin
Italy

Fontodi has belonged to the Manetti family since 1968. The family has been associated for centuries with another activity typical of the Chianti region, the production of its famous “terrecotte” tiles. A strong link with the territory and a great passion for quality have moved the estate successfully towards a more attentive cultivation of the vineyards, and a more profound knowledge of the potential of Sangiovese in the zone of Panzano.
