The Fontodi Chianti Classico DOCG Bio is a wine that represents this prestigious and historic Tuscan winery, now renowned and awarded all over the world. Plain and genuine wine but with a great elegance from traditional processing that gives unique emotions: 100% Sangiovese grapes come from a selection of particularly suitable soils, the wine naturally ferments with indigenous yeasts in steel and then refines at least 18 months in French barrique.
93 pts (Vinous) - The Chianti Classico is outrageously beautiful. Rich and seductive, it expresses the radiance of the year while retaining a good bit of translucence and energy. Rose petal, mint, white pepper and crushed flowers add elements of brightness to this classy, super-polished Chianti Classico. More than anything else, though, I am simply blown away by the wine's quality. A decade ago, Giovanni Manetti made darker more concentrated wines. Today, the Fontodi wines speak to finesse. The Chianti Classico is a great place to see that. It was aged in equal parts cask and neutral barrique.
