IGT Rosato

Le Fonti’s Rosato is made by bleeding our Sangiovese grapes, resulting in a fresh and fruity Rosé. It spends three months in stainless steel before bottling.

Ideal as an aperitif, with fish or spicy dishes: to be enjoyed cooled and young. The quintessential summer wine!

WinebottleChianti Classico Riserva DOCG

The Riserva Chianti Classico persuades through elegance and finesse. Sangiovese by heart with a little addition of Merlot, this wine ages for almost two years in French oak barrels before being bottled and aged for further 6-9 months on the bottle before release. The longer aging helps the wine to gain structure and longevity and makes it an ideal partner for any festive meal.

Product category: Toscana


Our grappa is distilled on our behalf and from our best pressed Sangiovese grapes at the famous Nannoni distillery. A surprisingly mild and fruity taste.

About us

Company details

Halfway between Florence and Siena, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, lies the small village of Panzano. Just below the village church, at 450 m above sea level, is our property, the Fattoria Le Fonti. It extends over 15 hectares (37 acres); 8.5 hectares (21 acres) are vineyards and the rest olive groves.

View of Le Fonti Compared to other vineyards in the area, Le Fonti is a small boutique style farm producing about 40,000 bottles or 3300 cases a year. Since 1994 Le Fonti is in the hands of the Schmitt-Vitali family. From the harvest to the final blend, we depend on family manpower and sophisticated taste. For expert consultation and knowledge, we rely on our enologist Dr Stefano Chioccioli.

Since 1994 we have replanted all of the vineyards, taking great care to select the right type of plants with the correct rootstock. We have also renovated and extended the cellars. The roots of a great wine are found in the vineyard and we strive to keep them in balance by farming sustainably (organic). Thanks to our relative small size we can follow the production with great care: only the best grapes arrive in the cellar and only the best selections get bottled in the end.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Le Fonti for a wine tasting or a cellar visit. For larger groups (more than 10 people), please contact us to make an appointment.
