Product Overview

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"The Mazzei 2018 Chianti Classico Fonterutoli shows a classic bouquet with tart berry fruit, forest floor, bitter almond, blue flower, cola and grilled herb. The wine presents a classic, cool-vintage profile that suits Sangiovese very nicely as it pulls out the bright, red berry energy that is inherent to this variety. The acidity and bright fruit presented here would make a great companion to chicken roast with potatoes." -ML, 8/13/20

90 Points - Vinous
"I was quite impressed with the Fonterutoli wines this year. Filippo Mazzei continues to give his wines a greater geographic imprint, which is always great to see. There are now three Gran Seleziones, the Fonterutoli, Vicoregio 36 and the new Badiola, from the communes of Castellina, Castelnuovo Berardenga and Radda, respectively, all of them distinctive. Siepi, Fonterutoli's Sangiovese/Merlot blend rounds out this range of new releases." -AG, Aug/2020

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"The shy nose eventually reveals plum, blue flower and earthy whiffs of truffle and damp soil. The straightforward, subtle palate is between light and medium bodied, suggesting sour cherry and star anise alongside dusty tannins. It closes on a coffee-bean note. Drink through 2022." -KO, 12/31/20
