Fontodi has belonged since 1968 to the Manetti family for centuries dedicated to another typically Chiantigian activity: the production of the famous terracottas. Precisely in the name of this strong link with the territory and with great passion for quality, the company has successfully addressed a more and more careful cultivation of the vineyards and a deeper knowledge of the potential of Sangiovese in the territory of Panzano.More about the Winery
