Description Sub Region Producer Notes
In its Dino Amphora, Fontodi set out to craft a wine that privileged its pure Sangiovese flavors, but in 2016, the estate got a concentrated, balanced, powerful, and energetic bottling. Opulent yet fresh, the ’16 Dino Amphora reflects its high quality, low quantity banner vintage--it’s a long-aging Sangiovese wine that will provide Sangiovese purists with decades of drinking enjoyment. Named “Dino” in honor of Fontodi owner-winemaker Giovanni Manetti’s father, Dino Amphora embodies its pure Italian spirit and honors its Tuscan heritage by aging in orci, or Tuscan-styled amphora crafted of Tuscan clay, made by Manetti Gusmano & Figli, Dino Manetti’s family business that still makes terracotta tiles today. This mono-varietal Sangiovese ferments with natural yeasts for thirty to forty days; the wine ages in orci for eight to ten months, followed by two months in stainless steel before resting in bottle.
