Fontodi has belonged to the Manetti family since 1968. The family has been associated for centuries with another activity typical of the Chianti region. And it is in the name of this strong link with the territory and a great passion for quality that the estate has moved successfully towards an ever more attentive cultivation of the vineyards and a more profound knowledge of the potential of Sangiovese in the zone of Panzano.

Fontodi is a certified organic estate which extends over 130 hectars of which about 70 are planted with vines. They not only are no chemical products used but there is an effort to maximize the internal resources of the estate, thereby reducing the need for any external input. They respect the environment means wines that are better, purer, and a truer expression of the grape and the territory.

Fontodi wines are produced from grapes coming from their own vineyards, picked by hand, chosen with care and vinified. In Fontodi, the process of vinification and ageing in wood takes place in the modern cellar, built on descending levels to take advantage of gravity, guaranteeing the most respect possible for the natural integrity of the grape, in order to exalt the character and elegance of the wines.

Wine Advocate 98 points:

"The 2019 Flaccianello della Pieve is another stunning wine that sums up the character of the vintage and reflects the sun-drenched beauty of its quintessentially Tuscan surroundings. Giovanni Manetti and his team have two new important wines in the works, but Flaccianello remains an old love and a wine that hits the highest marks for quality consistency vintage after vintage. I tasted this wine next to the 100-point 2016 vintage for friendly comparison, and perhaps the main difference is that the tannins are finer and more accessible in this bottle. It offers rich concentration and layers of dark fruit that wrap thickly over the senses. Tannin management is an active pursuit. Time in barrique has been reduced over the years in favor of a final six-month resting period in larger oak casks. In fact, the barrel room was recently enlarged to give more room to these bigger vessels. The 2019 vintage recalls the balance of 2001 with the freshness of 2013. However, 2019 is more profound."- tasted Feb 2023
