Description

Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a remarkable combination of concentration and elegance, this wine displays ripe red berry fruit, blackberry, blackcurrant, mocha, morello cherry and a touch of liquorice alongside a muscular structure, fine tannins, balanced with pleasant acidity and a very long finish.

Fonterutoli is located 5 km south of Castellina in Chianti (Siena), on the hills facing the Val d’Elsa, in the heart of the Chianti Classico. Owned by the Mazzei family since 1435, it still retains its original form, that of a tranquil country village: a cluster of houses, the church of San Miniato and the villa, built at the end of the 1500s where the medieval castle once stood. Today, the estate comprises 117 hectares of vineyard, largely planted with Sangiovese with some Merlot, Colorino, Malvasia Nera and Cabernet Sauvignon vines also planted. The cellar at Fonterutoli, designed by architect, Agnesi Mazzei, is one of the most impressive in the region, and has a minimal impact on the environment.
