The first "Super" Chianti Classico

Castello di Fonterutoli is one the three estates of the Mazzei family. Situated in a celebrated part of Chianti Classico. 40 years of research, an altimetric gradient of over 300 metres, coming from the best 50 parcels out of 120, 36 biotypes of Sangiovese, of which 18 are exclusive different vinifications and refinements: since its birth, Castello Fonterutoli is the real Château of Chianti Classico.

20 months in small french oak barrels (225 and 500 lt / 60% new) and then finished 4 months in concrete tanks.
2013 Vintage:
"An essence of sweet cherry grounds the surrounding flavors of leather, iron, spice and tobacco in this firm red, which remains vibrant and refined. Bracing acidity and dense, muscular tannins play out on the long finish. Drink now through 2028." *Highly Recommended* - 95 Points, Wine Spectator
