Angela Fronti is the winemaker for Istine. She’s an exciting young winemaker and a trained enologist, with a non-interventionist style and a deep understanding of the region. Her family has sold fruit to the top wineries in Chianti Classico since 1959, but it wasn’t until 2009 when Angela came back home from enology school that she convinced her parents to start bottling their own wine. This wine comes from a group of high-altitude, small vineyards around the town of Radda in Chianti, and one over the border in Gaiole in Chianti.

The winery is relatively young and is owned by the Fronti family, whose origins are proudly peasants.In 1959 Bruno Fronti creates a service business in agriculture, which grows successfully thanks to the collaboration with his sons Fabio and Stefano.Agrichianti is today one of the most established companies in earthmoving, vineyard and green management.After many years in the viticutural business, in 1982 the family buys its first hectares of land, where they plant their vineyards.Today we own about 20 hectares of vineyards, mainly in the municipal area of Radda in Chianti, but also in Gaiole in Chianti. These vineyards are not in a single plot, but in separate parcels.For many years the wine produced with our grapes, except for a small part for family use, is sold in bulk to other wineries, till harvest 2009, when finally we bottle our first wine with our own family label.


With the introduction of the second generation into the company, it is natural to start our own production in the bottle.The 2009 harvest and the first 3000 bottles of Chianti Classico concretely represent what has always been the great passion for wine, thus integrating and completing the family business.The commitment for the future is to evolve and grow, while remaining faithful to the traditions and to our territory, trying to enhance as much as possible what nature is offering us and the viticultural peculiarities of the highest lands of the Chianti region.We are certified organic since 2016. We believe in respect for nature, for the people working in the vineyard and for those who taste the wine in the glass.


Radda in Chianti is a charming medieval village, surrounded by towering walls.Located on a slope between the Arbia and Pesa valleys, it has very ancient origins.In its surroundings numerous Etruscan settlements have been found andin fact the names of many places today still recall these ancient origins.Inhabited since the 9th century BC, it is mentioned in a document dated 1002 BC.The town preserves the medieval map, characterized by narrow alleys that lead to the main square of the town,where the Church of San Niccolò is located.Today Radda and its beautiful surroundings have become a popular tourist destination for those who love good wine and nature.It’s a small but very active town; numerous events are organized there,from the passage of the ‘Eroica’, a bicycle race on vintage bicycles, to the well-known festival ‘Radda nel Bicchiere’.
