Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Mix 36 Toscana is a blend of the 36 different Sangiovese clones planted on the property. Layers of ripe red fruit, flowers, spices and licorice caress the palate as this silky, totally refined wine opens up in the glass. The 2008 impresses for its elegant personality and sense of refinement. Although the wine is delicious today, I am curious to see how it develops in bottle, as the fruit is still very primary. This is an impressive showing from Fonterutoli. The Mix 36 spent 18 months in 500 liter barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028.

This is a solid set of new releases from the Mazzei family and long-time consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini.

James Suckling
A red with plum and currant character with chocolate undertones. Full body, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Focused and well done. Chewy. Blend of different Sangiovese clones from Castello di Fonterutoli. Muscular wine.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Aromas of smoke, toast and vanilla meet up with black cherry, plum and spice flavors in this powerful red. Fresh and balanced, leaning a little toward the charred oak. Needs air now, or time in the bottle. Sangiovese. Best from 2014 through 2020.

Mazzei Winery Video

For 26 generations, the Mazzei family has been producing benchmark Italian wines from their historic Castello di Fonterutoli estate in Tuscany and more recently in the Maremma, Sicily and the Veneto. The passion, commitment and expertise that goes into these expressive wines is a reflection of the Mazzei’s spirit of innovation and respect for each property’s unique terroir.

Since the 1400’s the Mazzei’s have been producing wine; making it one of the oldest running Italian companies - of any kind! Their ancestry is closely woven not only into Tuscany’s winemaking history, but as well as to this venerated region’s political and cultural past. The notable merchant, Ser Lapo Mazzei, is credited for authoring the first official document mentioning “Chianti wine” (December 16, 1398). Years later, Philip Mazzei, winemaker, political thinker and friend of Thomas Jefferson, is credited for influencing another historic document, whose philosophical writings on equality of man served as inspiration for the U.S. Declaration of Independence. 

Four beautiful properties make up the Mazzei portfolio. Castello di Fonterutoli in historic Chianti Classico, Tuscany remains the historic home of Mazzei. An enthusiasm for discovery has led to the purchase of Belguardo in the Maremma, which borders the Tuscan coast and Zisola in Noto, Sicily. Giovanni Mazzei has recently taken over his family’s estate, Villa Marcello, in the Veneto, For six generations the Mazzei property at Castello di Fonterutoli has been family-owned and operated; which is also the case since the establishment of Belguardo, Zisola and Villa Marcello. Lapo Mazzei manages as Chairman, along with his sons Filippo and Francesco, both CEOs. The newest generation, Giovanni Mazzei, represents the 26th generation, poised to continue in the family’s footsteps of producing innovative and expressive wines from Central Tuscany, the Maremma, Sicily and the Veneto.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
