The Chianti Classico from Fontodi is a blend from different plots within the estate vineyards in the south-facing amphitheatre known as Conca d’Oro (Golden shell). The wine is deep ruby red in colour. On the nose, it has aromas of sour cherry and plums leading to notes of leather and tobacco. On the palate, it has great depth of flavour, with juicy fruit and supple tannins, giving way to a silky-smooth texture. It has a great structure and finishes with a fine mineral note.
