Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Riserva 1996
Bouquet: Also remarkably complex because of the wine's youthfulness. On one hand, smoky scents of tobacco and licorice and, on the other, fully ripe red and black fruit.
Flavor: Power held in check. That sums up the sensations communicated by this wine because of its impressive structure of tannins and classic acidity still to be smoothed. The length and gentleness of the finish is immediately appreciated.
Conclusions: A wine that rewards those who are willing to wait but it can be consumed immediately in combination with imposing game dishes.
Alcohol: 13.60% by volume
This dynamic family has carefully safeguarded the inherent beauty and rich heritage of Fonterutoli, while simultaneously implementing measures to ensure cutting-edge quality in the vineyards and cellars. An exciting example of this dedication to quality is the in-progress construction of a stunning new cellar that operates via gravity and clean energy, and has already been defined as "the most impressive in the entire Chianti region" by Steven Spurrier of Decanter Magazine.
