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.
Complex aromas of blackberry, exotic spice, menthol and a whiff of crushed violet, vanilla, licorice and mocha. Structured yet refined on the palate with in fine-grained tannins.
