Fontodi ‘Filetta di Lamole’ Chianti Classico 2020 750ml

About Fontodi

Tenuta Fontodi has everything going for it: amazing history, terrific microclimates, outstanding skill, intense passion, and great people. The estate sits the... Conca d’Oro, or golden bowl, an ideal spot for winegrowing, and the Manetti family, who has owned the 200-acre Fontodi estate since 1968, has roots in Chianti Classico that date back to 1398, the year when Chianti had its very first official designation. Although the Manettis have been terracotta makers longer than they have been vintners, their love for Toscana drives both pursuits, and, indeed, Giovanni Manetti, Fontodi’s owner-winemaker, has been the president of the Chianti Consorzio since 2018. Fontodi has made some radical changes in recent years, including removing the Cabernet Sauvignon component of its Vigna del Sorbo, making it pure Sangiovese, and opting to vinify some of their wines in amphorae. Certified organic, thoroughly traditional, and utterly bewitching, Fontodi’s wines stand as the epitome of Tuscan elegance, and that never goes out of style.

About Marchesi Antinori Tenuta Tignanello

The Antinori family’s Tenuta Tignanello is a gently hilly property located between that the family has owned since the 1800s. This... 321-acre Tuscan estate gets its name — Tignanello — from its most famous vineyard, but its vines grow the grapes for multiple wines. When Piero Antinori was searching to add his own voice to the Super-Tuscan revolution in the late 1960s, he turned to Giacomo Tachis, the consulting winemaker behind Sangiovese, as well as Ornellaia. Piero wanted to make wines that reflected his family’s Tuscan heritage, and in 1971, Tignanello, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Cabernet Franc, was born. Sporting marly, limestone-rich soils that show remnants of the Pliocene Period when the region was covered in an ocean, Tenuta Tignanello enjoys sunny days, cool nights, and a gentle breeze, ideal conditions for wines that sing with a true Tuscan voice. This estate is home to three of Antinori's  crown jewels: Solaia, Tignanello, and Chianti Classico Riserva.

Marchesi Antinori Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2020 750ml

Badia a Passignano

One of the Antinori family of estates, Badia a Passignano sits on just over 550 acres in the heart of Chianti Classico, in Sambuca Val di Pesa, a few miles... south of Antinori's Tignanello estate. As you'd expect from the Antinori family, this Chianti estate is a superb site for growing Sangiovese, Toscana's most emblematic grape, and making Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, the crème de la crème of Chianti’s wines. Like a fairytale fortress in the heart of Chianti Classico, Badia a Passignano's stone walls rise out of a thicket of cypress trees, and this former abbey, originally built in 395, has played home to the Vallombrosian order, an arm of the Benedictine monks, for centuries — in fact, the Vallombrosian monks, who specialize in viniculture and forestry, continue to live on the premises. In 1987, the Antinori family bought the land surrounding the abbey, and the Antinori family uses the abbey’s ancient cellars to age its Chianti Classico Gran Selezione.

Fontodi Vigna del Sorbo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2020 750ml

Fontodi Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo

Fontodi’s Vigna Sorbo plot sits in the Conca d’Oro directly in front of the cantina, and this prime location has... been earmarked for Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, the wine’s highest designation, since 2010. The Vigna del Sorbo bursts with lush fruits, crackles with acidic energy, wafts with pure Tuscan perfume, and fills the mouth with fine-grained tannins. Balsamic herbs, dusty earth, crushed violet petals, peppery spices, and wet river rocks frame the succulent wild berries and bright cherries of this age-worthy wine — it’s stupendous.
