Fonterutoli Chianti Class Castello 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Owned by the Mazzei family since 1435 the Fonterutoli estate is unique in Tuscany, and is centred around the eponymous hamlet, five kilometres south of Castellina in Chianti. The estate measures around 500 hectares in total and is divided among four key production areas: Fonterutoli (planted with Sangiovese and Merlot); Siepi (planted with Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon); Badiola (Sangiovese and Merlot) and Belvedere (Sangiovese). The Chianti Classico vineyards are located in Fonterutoli at Castellina and La Badiola at Radda. They are all south/south west facing. The wine they produce is a dark, richly coloured ruby/garnet nectar. It has a perfumed nose of black cherry and spice with hints of woodsmoke and tobacco. There are full, ripe tannins, integrated acidity and a long finish. This will compliment roast leg of lamb with rosemary, lemon, and garlic with roast potatoes or beef tenderloin with spring vegetables.

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.

This is a very good wine for the price. Delicious without being oaked or too rich and definitely does not taste like it's from California.
