The Fonterutoli estate is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico DOC in Tuscany and has remained in the same family for 24 generations. The Mazzei family owns 117 hectares of vine, divided in 120 parcels all harvested by hand. Grapes are vinified and matured separately in order to add complexity to the wines.
“You’ll find aromas of French oak, blackberry, exotic spice, menthol and a whiff of crushed violet on this glossy red. The palate shows both structure and finesse, offering juicy black cherry, vanilla, licorice and mocha framed in fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2020.” – 92 pts Wine Spectator June 2016
