2009 CHIANTI CLASSICO, Fontodi. Tuscany

Bin:  530

Alcohol percentage:  14%



Fontodi is in Panzano, a small village in the very centre of Chianti Classico, the beautiful rolling hills between Florence and Siena. Fontodi’s vineyards are all in the prime area, the ‘Conca d’Oro’ (golden shell)

Grape variety:

100% Sangiovese, matured in French oak (but no new oak) for 12 months


Giovanni Manetti’s family have owned the estate since 1969, investing the money made from their terracotta factory nearby. Everything Giovanni does is meticulously planned to ensure the highest possible quality – rarely have I met such a professional operator (in the best possible sense) in the wine world. All his vineyards are now organic and he is doing trials with biodynamics

Maturity potential:

2011 – 2015

Old Bridge rating:

Fontodi invariably make one of the best straight Chianti in the Classico area. The serious 2008 is no exception. Retains the savoury, lively, cherry-edged character of Sangiovese, but with modern ripeness and elegance
