The Wine

The Rosato is a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot. It's all about freshness and crunch here with 100% steel tank vinification. 

This little Rosato is a ripper! Crisp and vibrant, its the perfect match for casual matchings /sipping. Tried the remaining half of the bottle on day 5 with a selection of Society pizza/pasta - Loved it even more than my first encounter - so being screw capped will take a little age so no need to rush through your consignment. A true vino that maintains connectiveness to it's origins. Recommend & the $s are a bonus! TC

About the Wine Maker

Founded by the Troiani family in 1959 this small estate based in the picturesque town of San Gimignano has vineyards located at 200 meters above sea level, the ideal altitude for growing the Vernaccia variety. Low yields, gentle pressing and conscientious winemaking, produce clear, vibrant expressions of Vernaccia and Sangiovese.

And what a feat they perform at Fontaleoni!
Making wines of this calibre for this money. They offer some of the best value to quality ratio around and nothing is spared or corners cut in the production to achieve that.

Now in the hands of brother and sister team Matteo and Simona, it's very hard not love what have done with a little help from consultant Paolo Caciorgna in taking this estate to top echelons of the region. This quality-focused estate has worked tirelessly to improve all aspects of production. This small grower has squarely moved against the grain of the bigger quantity over quality establishments by doing all the right things and the praise from the press and punters is proof of that.

The vineyards planted on the verdant green hills that surround their family home are tended by hand and the yields kept low enough that it should make many of their neighbours blush. There is a strong move towards organic production spear-headed by Matteo and Simona with minimal sulphur additions, organic-based fertilizers and no herbicides.

These are beautiful wines that speak of their vineyards and equally the family style of digestibility and ease of consumption. Excitingly the latest and future shipments have also been secured with screwcap- just another positive from this wonderful producer.
