Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

This Chianti Classico from Mazzei is 90% Sangiovese from 4 different clones and 10% Malvasia Nera and Merlot. This lovely example spent 12 months in small oak barrels, just enough to give it a slight oaky feel in the mouth. Dark cherry, white pepper, lots of acid and a little earthiness deliver the classic Chianti flavours. The wine is well balanced, full bodied and has a pleasing finish. This will easily last another 10 years. The Mazzei family have been making wine at Castello di Fonterutoli in Tuscany since 1435. Impressive!

Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

2nd bottle of this wine in as many weeks. This one not quite as developed or complex as the last but still a good example of this Chianti vintage. Typical dark cherry, with some wood and spice, but a little disappointing on the finish. Chalk it up to this individual bottle as the last one was very quite lovely!

Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

Very enjoyable Chianti Classico from the 2010 vintage. Deep ruby in colour, the wine shows lots of juicy ripe black cherry on the palate. It opens up to reveal layers of leather, cedar, a little chocolate and a subtle smokiness. This is a full bodied wine with well balanced tannins and a gorgeous lengthy finish
