This outstanding Chianti Classico Riserva is how the Marquis Mazzei celebrate their notable ancestor Ser Lapo, author of the first official document mentioning “Chianti wine” (December 16th, 1398).
Castello di Fonterutoli
Complex aromas of ripe cherries, black truffles and dried flower, such as lavender and rose petals. Full-bodied, tight and solid with chewy tannins, yet it's polished and refined. Untertones of porcini mushrooms and walnut rind. Energetic and focussed.
Bursting with flavours of blackcurrant, mulberry and herbs, and fine, elegant and juicy in the mouth. Fine silky tannins integrate with the fruit and minimal oak aging to produce a long approachable flavour.
Warm plum and raspberry fruit on the nose with hints of rocky earth, spice and violets. Lovely and ripe, medium to full bodied with juicy plum and raspberry on the palate also, with black cherry, spice and a lick of creamy oak. It’s a generous juicy mouthful with bags of fruit and spice, a hint of tea, good acidity too, keeping it vibrant.
