There are winds of change blowing in Chianti Classico: rather than masking the vibrancy and purity of Sangiovese with heavy French oak (or worse, with the addition of French varietals), many winemakers have chosen to wholly embrace this noble grape. Few estates can claim responsibility for this renaissance more than Fontodi, a bastion of organic farming and a champion of Sangiovese’s role as the grape of Chianti.

During the week I usually cook light pastas with different types of vegetables and Chianti always is a precise and easy pairing.
Fontodi Chianti Classico from the charming village of Panzano gives great elegance and minerality with lingering cherry flavor. In a vast selection of Chianti in our store, I will recommend to follow Panzano's Sangiovese because of its unmistakable elegance.
