Case Fonterutoli Chianti Classico DOCG W Free Shipping 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The availability of this product is limited and subject to change.<br/><br/>Wine Advocate Review<br/>Rated 90<br/>From the Mazzei brothers' beautiful, state-of-the-art winery at the heart Chianti Classico, the 2011 Chianti Classico Fonterutoli is made from a blend of different Sangiovese clones with some Malvasia Nera, Colorino and Merlot. Spice and leather add fullness to the back, but berry aromas of cherry and dried mulberry take center stage. The wine does a great job of presenting the elegance of Sangiovese against the soft richness of modern winemaking. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2018.<br/><br/>Wine Tasting Notes<br/>Deep ruby red. Bright aromas of fresh cherries mingle with notes of thyme and subtle smoky nuances. Complex and elegant, with flavors of ripe red fruits and a pleasant acidity. Fine and well balanced, with a lengthy finish.

On the main square next to the ancient church is the family villa, surrounded by the charming village apartments and suites managed as luxury b&b that can be rented individually or as a single unit.
