Fontodi, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Chianti Classico, 50ml
The Manetti family has owned Fontodi since 1968, but has been in Chianti for centuries. Though they have always made wine and oil, their primary business was and is the production of Chianti’s finest terracotta at their factory in Ferrone. The same attention to detail that makes them the best producers of terracotta has been brought to bear on Fontodi and has transformed a crumbling farmhouse with a few hectares of vineyards and olive groves into one of Chianti Classico’s most impressive estates, now with 10,000 olive trees. Managed by Giovanni Manetti, who has run the property since 1980, the wines and olive oil are as meticulously made as the vineyards, olive groves and cellar are immaculately tended.
