Mazzei Castello di Fonterutoli Gran Sel 2018
The Mazzei 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli is Sangiovese with a tiny component of Malvasia Nera. The bouquet is both floral and fruity with wild berry, rose hip, lavender and cassis. The tannins are silky and elegant.
Siepi, owned by Mazzei family since 1435, has always been a model farm, still managed today with the same kind of respect. A unique location, a special microclimate, the foresight in the early 1980s to plant Merlot as the ideal grape to complement Sangiovese in a very particular “terroir” produce a wine which is perfectly balanced between elegance, power and complexity.
