Castello di Fonterutoli:
Fonterutoli is located 5 km south of Castellina in Chianti (Siena), on the hills facing the Val d'Elsa, in the heart of the Chianti Classico.

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.

A New-World style Chianti - silky, rich and soft with a long, fruit-filled finish. Elegant is the word here: deep, multi- layered and medium to full bodied and packed with elegant flavors of black fruits. Smooth tannins, lively balancing acidity and a light overlay good make this wine drinkable now or in the next 3 - 4 years.

Blackberry and milk chocolate aromas follow through to a medium body with silky tannins and a fruity finish with a hint of fresh herb and mushroom. Solid as always. Best after 2009. 32080 cases made. James Suckling 90WS
