Fontodi is one of Tuscany's great wine estates. It is located in a tiny town called Panzano in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. The vines are farmed organically and have been certified since 2008. As a general rule, the wines made here are superb, but often require aging to get there. Fontodi wines under the stewardship of Giovanni Manetti are among Tuscany's top tier.

97 Points Galloni "The Flaccianello della Pieve is a powerhouse. In this vintage, Flaccianello has all of its typical richness but also a good deal of freshness that will help it age. Interestingly, the stylistic difference between Flaccianello and Vigna del Sorbo is more accentuated in 2013 than in 2012. Deep layered and unctuous, the 2013 offers plenty of blue and purplish-hued fruits, clove, lavender and new leather nuances, all supported by big, searing tannins that will require the better part of a decade to settle down. The 2013 is magnificent Flaccianello with a bright future." Antonio Galloni
