Mezzei Castello di Fonterutoli Siepi Rosso di Toscana Sangiovese Merlot IGT Italy Tuscany Castello di Fonterutoli Sangiovese 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

"... an outstanding blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Merlot aged for 16 months in French oak, boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with sumpmtuous aromas of new oak, black currants, blackberries, and new saddle leather. It is dense, powerful yet harmonious, with sweet tannin and plenty of structure. Give it 1-2 years of cellaring and enjoy it over the following decade...90" WA 10/01

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. 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.

This offers up lovely aromatic complexity with dried and fresh herbs, sweet oak, leather, spicy wood, jammy black currant and a bit of baked plum. It is fresh, bright and complex. A touch soft, perhaps a little dilute and just a little loose on the palate, but still nicely fresh with a little plummy, almost nectarine tinged fruit. The tannins seem a touch dry but remain covered by the fruit which wears coffee, vanilla and spice wood tones. The back end is more fruited and shows a flash of tomato leaf before the wood takes control. 89pts
