Intense ruby red color. Scents of blackberry and vanilla aromas. Well-structured, with fine tannins and very smooth, elegant finish.
The 2008 Chianti Classico Fonterutoli is impressive juice. A melange of mineral-infused scents add complexity to the dark cherry fruit. Medium in body, the Chianti Classico shows wonderful freshness, clarity and verve. While it doesn’t appear to have the density to support extended cellaring, this is one of the most finessed Chiantis I tasted from the uneven 2008 vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.
If you're looking for a steady, confident and food-friendly Chianti Classico, this edition of Fonterutoli will not dissapoint. In fact, the wine consistently delivers quality and affordability year after year and promises a perfect pairing with-oven roasted pasta or veal dishes.
