Wine Of The Week – Castello di Fonterutoli Chianti Classico 2007
Fonterutoli’s Castello is the reward for years of research into the biotypes of Sangiovese found throughout their estate. Blended from 50 separate parcels of vines aged 10-26 years, on a mix of Galestro and Albarese soils. The wine is aged in French barrique (60% new) for 16 months. A blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
