The 2009 Castello di Fonterutoli Chianti Classic starts out bright and approachable, then it gains in complexity, blending black cherry, plum and dry spices on the palate, and ends suavely with smooth tannins. From the wonderful Tuscan 2009 vintage.
Wine Spectator (WS): 92
"A polished, international style, with toast and spice notes adding smoothness and depth to the black cherry and raspberry fruit. Rich and harmonious, with an impression of spice and mineral on the long aftertaste."
