Le Fonti’s vineyards are situated just below the village of Panzano, resembling a horseshoe-shape around the winery. Since 1994 all the vineyards have been replanted with selected rootstocks and plants adapted to our area, elevation and soil type.
The vineyards are farmed sustainably to save the integrity of the environment. Our vineyards and olivegroves are certified organic through ICEA organization. We strongly believe that a great wine starts in the vineyard and thus take meticulous care of our vines and select only the best grapes for the cellar.
The vineyards are planted on a mixed soil of gravel, schist, limestone, sand and clay – a soil mixture also known as Galestro. The composition of soil differs throughout the property and our vines are planted to use this to their best advantage.
2019 Le Fonti La Lepre IGT
Our housewine gets its name from the many rabbits and hares that roam our vineyards. It is made in the style of a young Chianti with Sangiovese and Merlot. It ages for four to six months in French oak barrels.
With its fresh acidity it is an ideal companion for daily meals of pasta or pizza.
