Really good Chianti feels like one of the wine world’s ‘best-kept secrets’, and this is one of the best I have tasted in a long time. Choosing from a range of several dozen to propose for the recent Spectator Italian offer, this immediately stood out as a must-buy, with its alluring perfume, and luscious, dark berry fruit.

Jonathan Ray obviously knows a class act when he tastes one, as he also picked it out as a real highlight. It’s a cracking food wine, with its ripeness, texture and bitter-cherry freshness a great match for the richest of dishes.

"The 2018 Fonterutoli Chianti Classico from Tuscany is in cracking form and right up my alley. From an estate owned by the Mazzei family since 1435, just south of Castellina in Chianti, it's a blend of Sangiovese with dashes of Malvasia Nera, Colorino and Merlot. It's soft, giving and supple, with rich, dark, spicy fruit and bang-on acidity. It's first rate."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine

"The Mazzei 2018 Chianti Classico Fonterutoli shows a classic bouquet with tart berry fruit, forest floor, bitter almond, blue flower, cola and grilled herb. The wine presents a classic, cool-vintage profile that suits Sangiovese very nicely as it pulls out the bright, red berry energy that is inherent to this variety. The acidity and bright fruit presented here would make a great companion to chicken roast with potatoes."
