Fontodi, ‘Meriggio’ Sauvignon Blanc 2021 – 6 bottles OCB (In-Bond)


In stock


Fontodi is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, close to the village of Panzano. This is the estate’s white wine, produced from south-facing hills that get plenty of late sun (Meriggio means “afternoon” in Italian.)

A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc with a splash of Trebbiano, aged partly in stainless steel tanks and in clay amphora. Stylistically, this probably sits somewhere in the middle; not quite as lean or flinty as a Sancerre, certainly not as fruity or tropical as Marlborough Sauv, but a lovely balance between the two – richly textured, super fresh and clean, with lots of grassy, herbal notes.

This wine is offered in-bond. Prices do not include duty (£2.67/btl) or VAT (20%), which must be paid if this product is sold out of bond.
