  • Traditional, highly regarded producer
  • Sauvignon Blanc with 10% Trebbiano
  • An aromatic, expressive Tuscan white

This is a ripe and vibrant, textural white that Fontodi believes to be their most complex to date. From Fontodi’s organically tended La Rota vineyard of mostly old-vine Sauvignon Blanc, the grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel then aged on the lees for six months in a combination of stainless steel and amphora.

Antonio Galloni

“The 2018 Meriggio is a very pretty white from Fontodi. In this vintage, Giovanni Manetti added 10% Trebbiano and also aged 1/3rd of the wine in terra cotta, both of which help retain a touch of freshness that is quite welcome. The combination of Panzano richness that comes so naturally, with the aromatics of Sauvignon and the energy of Trebbiano make for a compelling, super-expressive white.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
