At last, the beautiful Tuscan red wines from Fattoria Le Fonti in Panzano, right in the heart of Chianti Classico have arrived. Run by Guido Vitali and Vicki Schmidt, Le Fonti produces very typical Sangiovese-based wines full of colour, aromas and rich fruit flavours.
The vineyards here have been replanted over the past two decades and the old stone cellars have been renovated and expanded. The vineyards here, right on the edge of the tiny village of Panzano in Chianti, are planted mainly with Sangiovese but with a little Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Le Fonti’s wines have been growing in quality and reputation and Guido and Vicki’s determination has begun to be rewarded with awards from leading wine publications, including the Gambero Rosso. You can find more on Le Fonti at http://www.fattorialefonti.it/home.html
