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. Vin Santo is a traditional wine from Tuscany, and every producer has their unique recipe for this luscious, golden wine. Using Malvasia and Sangiovese grapes dried for five months, Fontodi ages the wine for at least five years before release.
The 2003 Vin Santo is deep gold in colour with an elegant and complex nose, including aromas of dried fruits, apricots, dates and almonds.
