Mix 36 2008 - 94 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2008 Mix 36 Toscana is a blend of the 36 different Sangiovese clones planted on the property. Layers of ripe red fruit, flowers, spices and licorice caress the palate as this silky, totally refined wine opens up in the glass. The 2008 impresses for its elegant personality and sense of refinement. Although the wine is delicious today, I am curious to see how it develops in bottle, as the fruit is still very primary. This is an impressive showing from Fonterutoli.
Mix 36 2008 - 91 points, Wine Spectator Online/ Aromas of smoke, toast and vanilla meet up with black cherry, plum and spice flavors in this powerful red. Fresh and balanced, leaning a little toward the charred oak. Needs air now, or time in the bottle. Sangiovese.
Castello di Fonterutoli, one of Italy’s most prestigious wine producers, is situated on a historic property embracing an entire tranquil, centuries-old hamlet just south of Castellina in Chianti. The estate has been in the hands of the Mazzei family since 1435 and is today led by Lapo Mazzei and his sons, Francesco and Filippo. This dynamic family has carefully safeguarded the inherent beauty and rich heritage of Fonterutoli, while simultaneously implementing measures to ensure cutting-edge quality in the vineyards and cellars. The spectacular Fonterutoli property today comprises 470 hectares, of which 79 hectares are devoted to four distinct vineyard sites: Fonterutoli, Siepi, Badiola and Belvedere. The Sangiovese grape finds itself particularly at home in these four areas, which are planted at altitudes varying between 750 and 1,640 feet above sea level, at south and southwest exposure. The rocky limestone and sandstone soil structure, high density planting (7,000 plants per hectare) and low yields of less than 40 hectoliters per hectare result in the production of complex, elegant and powerful Sangiovese wines. Production Area Castellina in Chianti, Tuscany. A mix of 36 distinct Sangiovese biotypes. The vineyards are located at 1,050 feet above sea level in Alberese and Limestone soils. Grape Varieties 100% Sangiovese Vinification Grapes were hand harvested beginning on October 16, then fermented in temperature-controlled tanks at 79-82°F. The wine underwent 15 days of maceration. Color Deep ruby Bouquet Complex aromas of fresh red berries. Taste Extremely elegant with red fruit notes and a persistent finish. Alcohol 14.2%
