“Proprietor Angela Fronti crafts some of the most distinctive Chianti Classicos readers will come across. The single-vineyard wines are each incredibly unique. Istine emerges from a parcel between Radda and Castellina, while Casanova dell’Aia is near Radda and Cavarchione is in Gaiole. The Riserva Le Vigne is a blend of all three. Aging is done in cask. These are among the most thrilling wines I tasted this year.” – Antonio Galloni

The winery is relatively young and is owned by the Fronti family, whose origins are proudly peasants. In 1959 Bruno Fronti creates a service business in agriculture, which grows successfully thanks to the collaboration with his sons Fabio & Stefano. After many years in viticultural business, in 1982 the family bought its first hectares of land and planted their vineyards.

Today, they own about 20 hectares of vineyards, many in the municipal area of Radda in Chianti.

The wines made from the Istine vineyard have a brilliant medium-red color; aromas and flavors of red fruit, particularly cherry, with a background note of something herbal.

It finishes with a tea-like hint of bitterness and lovely, fresh, almost pomegranate acidity.

They are certified organic since 2016 and believe in respect for nature, for the people working in the vineyard and for those who taste the wine in the glass.
