Take a virtual trip to Panzano in the heart of the Chianti Classico region with one of the most highly regarded Chianti producers, Fontodi, owned by the Manetti family who have been in the region for centuries.
Originally manufacturers of terracotta tiles, the family bought the estate in 1968 and have since built its status to nothing short of iconic. Their vineyards, centred around their conca d'ora (golden shell), produce fruit of freshness balanced with beautiful acidic structure which in turn produces wines of finesse and elegance.
Join Sarah Knowles MW, our buyer for Italy, in conversation with Giovanni Manetti as they discuss the unique terroir, the production and ageing of the wines and what makes them such leaders amongst their peers. So, grab a glass and be transported to a day in the life of this sangiovese super-power.
The Fontodi wines are available to buy here
