    Winemaker's Notes:

    90% Sangiovese, 5% Malavasia Nera, Colorino, 5% Merlot. A beautiful deep ruby red color entices the eye, as the bright aroma of fresh cherries mingle with thyme and smoky nuances. On the palate complex and elegant flavors of ripe red fruits are balanced by a pleasant acidity. There is a long, wonderful finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Chianti Classico Castello di Fonterutoli blossoms on the palate with dark red cherries, flowers, spices and subtle French oak. Darker smoke, tar and licorice nuances develop in the glass, adding notable richness. A juicy, round finish caps off this magnificent wine from Fonterutoli. In fact, this is one of the most refined vintages of the Castello I can remember tasting. As with so many Tuscan reds in 2007, the wine is delicious today, but will acquire further complexity if cellared. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.

    The Wine Advocate

    There's a good concentration of black fruit, with a hint of vanilla on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish.

    Wine Spectator

    Bold and modern, Fonterutoli delivers the goods year after year. The wine is rich and plush with deep concentration and excellent intensity. You’ll get aromas of bright cherry and some spice but what makes the wine stand apart is the clarity and purity of its aromas.
