Dear Wine Lover,
We are sure that this real star of Chianti Classico will be yours: Castello Fonterutoli 2013 from Marchesi Mazzei, the makers of Siepi an Concerto!
Since its conception in 1995, Castello Fonterutoli represents the real core of Chianti Classico! This exceptionally balanced and smooth red wine is the result of a complicated fruit-blending process. Some 36 biotypes of Sangiovese of which 18 are exclusive to Fonterutoli are used in the mix and are harvested from 120 single vineyard parcels. All the grapes of this parcels are vinificated and aged singularly before the final blend with the best 50 wines from the best single vineyards is made. A very complicated vinification process which leads to the incredible quality this wine has today.
The very critic Wine Spectator (95 points) and Robert Parker (94 points) underline these facts by stating that the Castello di Fonterutoli 2013 is a vibrant and refined as well as exceptionally balanced and smooth red wine!!

Wine Spectator "95" Points: An essence of sweet cherry grounds the surrounding flavors of leather, iron, spice and tobacco in this firm red, which remains vibrant and refined. Bracing acidity and dense, muscular tannins play out on the long finish. Drink now through 2028. 5,000 cases made.B.S.Robert Parker "94" Points: The 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli is an exceptionally balanced and smooth red wine that is the result of a complicated fruit-blending process. Some 36 biotypes of Sangiovese are used in the mix and are harvested from 120 single vineyard parcels with primarily Alberese and Galestro limestone soils. It is made from 92% Sangiovese, and 8% Malvasia Nera and Colorino. The bouquet offers bold cherry and plum with spice and soft tobacco._The Mazzei brothers at Castello di Fonterutoli have some exciting news this year. They have released the IGT Toscana 2013 Concerto once again. This celebrated "Super Tuscan" blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon was first introduced in 1981, but production stopped in 1994. The Mazzei brothers tell me they felt renewed confidence in releasing a wine of this caliber thanks to a better understanding of their comprehensive vineyard potential and the completion of their state-of-the-art winery a few years back. The Castello di Fonterutoli property includes more than 100 different vineyard parcels in the Chianti Classico area that range from 200 to 550 meters in altitude. This enormous patrimony affords increased flexibility when it comes to fruit selection and blending potential.
