This gorgeous Chianti is the little brother of the Castello Fonterutoli. Nevertheless, he enjoys elegance and harmonious body. He smells of ripe fruits of the forest and brings intense spicy notes with. Absolute bestseller of the winery with a very good price-performance ratio.

4 /5

A deep ruby/garnet colour. Perfumed nose of black cherry, bramble and spice with hints of tobacco. A rounded structure with ripe tannins, integrated acidity and a touch of spice on the long finish.
