Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico precisely in the valley which lies south of the town of Panzano and is called the Conca d’Oro (the golden shell) because of its amphitheatre shape. A genuine and characteristc Terroir, famous for centuries for its tradition of quality wine cultivation, thanks to a unique combination of high altitude, calcar clayschist soil, lots of light, and a fantastic micro-climate warm and dry with a marked difference in day and night-time temperatures.
Fontodi is a certified organic estate which extends over 130 hectars of which about 70 are planted with vines. The type of agriculture practised is inspired by the principles of respect of nature and sustainability.
