Lots of tangy and pretty fruit with aromas and flavors of orange peel, lemons and cherries. Medium to full body and a vivid finish. Drink now.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Fonterutoli offers a ripe fruit profile with cassis and summer cherry at the front. These fruity characteristics help to give this wine an accessible and immediate personality. This food-friendly wine evokes plenty of food pairing possibilities, including meat lasagna or grilled pork chops.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Fonterutoli is laced with dark cherry, plum, menthol lavender and spice. Succulent, pliant and wonderfully expressive, the 2016 shows an attractive darker side of Sangiovese that is further accentuated by the dollops of Malvasia Nera, Colorino and Merlot that round out the blend. This is very nicely done.

Tightly wound, with slightly reined-in flavors of black currant, black cherry and violet for now. Vibrant and balanced, with a long aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2030. 29,167 cases made, 1,800 cases imported.
