Our online feature this week is the 2018 Fonteroutoli Mazzei Chianti Classico (Tuscany – Chianti, Italy) – $29.99, regularly $36.99.

The hamlet of Fonterutoli, an old bastion of Florence a few kilometers from Castellina in Chianti, is blessed with an extraordinary view of Siena, which is so very close that it is possible to discern the Torre del Mangia and the outline of the Duomo. Time stopped here, maintaining the charm of the Middle Ages.

This Chianti Classico is made from grapes grown from 120 different company parcels and 7 different vineyard sites with an altitude varying from 220 – 570m above sea level. Spread across a unique range of soil and climate types, this red showcases the Chianti Classico region. It is the flagship and the “Best Seller” of the company, a benchmark for the whole category of Chianti Classico.

The 2018 is a well proportioned red with an elegant body, dark berries, fresh spice flavors, intense finishing with smooth taste. Great to pair with dark sauced pastas, BBQ, boiled meats with spicy sauces, aged cold cuts. Enjoy!
