Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
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.
"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.

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
