Wine maker notes
This wine truly represents the different faces of contemporary Tuscan winemaking. It brings together the fragrance and elegance of wines produced in the traditional area of Chianti Classico, with the opulence and power of wines from the more recently discovered Maremma region.

Since more than six hundred years, the Mazzei family produces unique wines with spirit and passion renewed from generation to generation. At Fonterutoli, as well as at Belguardo and Zisola, resides the same philosophy that aims to promote local vine varieties as an expression of the identity of the region, in respect of diversity and nature, via sustainable agriculture and improvements mindful of the delicate hydro-geologic balance, in order to prevent soil erosion and maximize water reserves in the region. All of this in order to be able to hand the land intact to future generations.
