Fontodi is a spectacular Wine Estate in the beautiful town of Panzano in Chainti Classico, Tuscany, Italy. My friend Givanni Manetti makes some of Italy's best wines, including some tasty Chianti and his famous Super Tuscan Wine "Flaccianello" made of 100% Sangiovese grapes. This is a 1st Class wine estate and if you have the chance to go for a tasting and tour, don't let the chance pass you by. "You'll Love it." Also while in Panzano, be sure to visit Dario Cecchini's butcher shop and Steak restaurant (Bisteca Fiorentina). And drink some great Chianti.

I recently booked a tour for nine family members. We are a group of foodies and wine lovers having toured numerous wineries in both the states and throughout Europe. I was interested in Fontodi mainly because of the mention that they were using terra-cotta pots for aging their wines. I noted all of our interests when making my booking noting I was interested in hearing about the use of this practice as well as tasting the difference between the wines aged in oak and those aged in terra-cotta. We drove nearly two and a half hours to make our ten am appointment. Our tour guide seemed more than annoyed that she had to take us on the tour and the presentation was robotic, absolutely no passion or engagement just yes or no answers. We tried to ask questions to prompt conversation, nothing. There are literally only 12 terra-cotta pilots being used for aging wine. We were told they started the “experiment” using the terra-cotta in 2012 with no real outcome yet?? There was no tasting and when I asked if I could purchase a bottle of the terra-cotta aged wine...No. the tasting itself was boring. 4 wines were poured one right after the other no explanation. The wines were unremarkable and certainly not worth the time to drive. Lackluster. Tuscany has beautiful vistas and remarkable wineries where the employees have an obvious passion for their work that this is not worth it. If the wine aged in terra-cotta pots is as sour and flat as our tour I guess we haven’t missed out on anything.

We had 8 days in tuscany and barolo. Fontodi was by far the worst experience. Our host was completely unengaged and mentally not present. The tasting was soulless and extremely tiny samples - like a teaspoon. We paid 15 euros each. Scandal! Never going to buy any fontodi wine from now on.

The tasting was nice and informative. Wines were very good with some nice vintages of the Chianti, especially the Sangiovese. Worth a vist!

Nice people with a certain distance towards the clients, not easy to get in we had to meet at a local wine fair. where all people were numbers, at least their wines were served at the right temparture. one bad thing they aren't open on weekends.
