Made in a style for drinking young, Spalletti Chianti follows a grand tradition of Chianti wines with perfume, flavor and an easy-to-drink character. Like the best food-friendly wines, Spalletti Chianti underscores the rich flavors found in the best Italian cuisine. The label is one of those owned by Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari Tenute.
Wines since the end of the 1700s
Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari are the heirs of a history that spans the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The founder, Lorenzo Folonari, was born in Valtellina in 1729 and moved his family to Val Camonica, an area destined to become the cradle of a line of entrepreneurs. There, they will bind their name to entrepreneurship – first through trade and then with the production of wine.
In 1882, the brothers Italo and Francesco Folonari transferred the company headquarters, then known as Fratelli Folonari, from Val Camonica to Bresci and in 1911, they bought the historic Tuscan winery Ruffino. Ruffino was known for its distribution in Italy and its Chianti Classico, bottled in traditional wine flasks wrapped in straw.
