Castello di Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep, earthy, herbal and slightly medicinal aromas of spicy fruit dominate the nose with hints of tobacco and briar adding great complexity and detail with a minty accent emerging with air. On the palate this is moderately rich, a little soft perhaps, but transparent with great purity to the fruit which is fairly ripe with blue and blackberry details. Silky in the mouth this has a fine palate impression but lacks a little detail, particularly in the moderately long finish. 92pts

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. 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.

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
