Buy Fonterutoli Chianti Classico
Color - Ruby red with violet nuances Bouquet - Bright aromas of fresh cherries mingle with notes of thyme and subtle smoky nuances Taste - Complex and elegant, with flavors of ripe red fruits and a pleasant acidity. Fine and well balanced, with a lengthy finish
Wine Spectator 92 points - The violet, cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors are pure, meshing seamlessly with the silky texture. Harmonious and approachable now, but the light dusting of tannins on the finish suggests this will develop nicely. Fine length. Drink now through 2020.B.S..August/2014

Wine maker notes
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.

Technical notes
90% Sangiovese; 5% Merlot, 3% Malvasia Nera; 2% Colorino
