Chianti Classico DOCG Fonterutoli 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Seit 1435 gehört das Weingut Castello di Fonterutoli der Familie Mazzei. Sie sind heute noch tief verwurzelt mit dem Chianti classico Gebiet. Diese Nähe zu ihrem Terroir spürt man auch im Wein. Die Sangiovese-Traube wird klassisch, elegant und komplex ausgebaut. In der Nase etwas Erdbeeren, deutliches und festes Holz. Am Gaumen eine dichte Struktur, leicht fleischig, ausgeprägte aber angenehme Säure bei guter Fruchtsüsse. Abgang sehr eindrucksvoll, Pflaumen, viel Fruchtsüsse, angenehme Säure, sehr lang.
