Wine Tasting Fontodi
On Thursday, February 22nd, 2018 at 7.00 pm
Hotel De’Ricci is delighted to invite you to the Wine-Tasting event of the Fontodi Winery
Mr. Giovanni Manetti will lead the Wine Tasting
The Fontodi Winery is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, precisely in the valley which lies south of the town of Panzano. It is often called the “Conca d’Oro” (Golden Shell), because of its amphitheatre-like shape.
A genuine and characteristic “Terroir,” for centuries this land has been famous for its tradition of high quality wine cultivation, thanks to a unique combination of high altitude, gnarly and clay schist soil, ample sunshine, and a fantastic micro-climate – warm and dry with markedly different day and night-time temperatures.
Since 1968, the Fontodi Winery has belonged to the Manetti family. For centuries, this family has been associated with another activity typical of the Chianti region, the production of its famous “terra-cotta” tiles. It is in the name of this strong link with the territory and great passion for quality that the Manetti fanily as has successfully moved their estate towards an ever more attentive cultivation of the vineyards and a profound knowledge of the potential of Sangiovese grapes in the zone of Panzano.
All Fontodi wines are produced from grapes coming from their own vineyards, picked by hand and chosen with care, and vini ed in a way that exalts the character of the wines and their territory.
The processes of vini cation and maturation in wood take place in the modern cellar on two levels so that the natural integrity of the grapes can be maintained as closely as possible throughout the entire wine production.
