Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Aug 2009)
The 2006 Chianti Classico Castello Fonterutoli is Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in French oak. It is a dark, structured wine packed with considerable heft in its dark fruit, herbs, scorched earth, minerals and sweet spices. This powerful Chianti Classico needs time in bottle, as the tannins are rather imposing at this stage. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

Wine maker notes
Hand harvested grapes undergo separate temperature-controlled fermentation for 15-18 days. The Sangiovese is then aged for 16 months in new French barriques; the Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 18 months in new French barriques.
