Fontella represents the quintessential image of Tuscany, the region of Chianti, with all its ancient walled villages, panoramic roads, medieval castles and fortresses, and green hills sketched by miles and miles of vineyards. A lifestyle. In this breathtaking land the origin of viticulture dates back to the Etruscan era, more than 3000 years ago. In the 12th century, local families began to build the reputation of Chianti: the first documents date back to the 13th century with a reference to the League of Chianti, one of the first geographical delimitations of a wine area in the world. As an emblem the “Lega del Chianti” had the image of a Black Rooster on a gold background.
