2020 FONTODI EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL. Tuscany, Italy
Alcohol Percentage: 0.0%
Size of bottle: 50cl
Area: Fontodi is in Panzano, a small village in the very centre of Chianti Classico, the beautiful rolling hills between Florence and Siena. Fontodi's vineyards are all in the prime area, the 'Conca d'Oro' (golden shell)/
Producer: Giovanni Manetti's family have owned the estate since 1969, investing the money made from their terracotta factory nearby. Everything Giovanni does is meticulously planned to ensure the highest possible quality - rarely have I met such a professional operator (in the best possible sense) in the wine world. All his vineyards are fully organic - he also follows the principles of biodynamics that he feels are helpful (he has his own cattle and produces all his own compost). He encouraged his neighbours to follow him and now the majority of Panzano producers are also organic.
Old Bridge Rating: Fontodi's olive oil is the one that retains its classically Tuscan, green, spicy edge the best through the year.
