  • Made in honour of Fontodi's founder, Dino Manetti
  • Raised in amphora
  • A purist's Sangiovese

Dino is 100% Sangiovese fermented in amphora and bottled with no added sulphites. Dino was made in honor of Fontodi’s founder, Dino Manetti, and this is the fourth year that the wine has seen a commercial release. An experimental version of the wine has been in production since 2008.


Antonio Galloni

“The 2016 Dino is 100% Sangiovese done in terra cotta, which brings out the wine’s perfumed aromatics and bright acid profile. A touch of reduction -typical of wines done in amphora – adds striking character to play off the young Sangiovese acids and tannins. Dino remains distinctive, if hard to place stylistically within the range, as it is quite different from the other wines here. Drink 2021-2031.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
