95 Points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate: "The Mazzei family was one of the first and most enthusiastic advocates of the Gran Selezione movement. Their 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli is a crowning achievement for this storied Chianti Classico winery. From an iconic vintage, this blend of 92% Sangiovese and 8% Malvasia Nera, aged in new and neutral oak for 20 months, shows sharp and delineated lines. Black fruit, plum and cherry intermingle with spice, tobacco and tilled earth. The wine shows zest and energy at its core." 9/19
93 Points, Antonio Galloni, VINOUS:"The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli is one of the most expressive wines I have tasted from the estate. Beautifully perfumed, layered and nuanced, the 2016 has so much to offer. Lavender, spice, menthol, ripe red/purplish fruit and rose petal grace this translucent, beautifully detailed Chianti Classico. The 2016 is a jewel of a wine." 8/19
95 Points, James Suckling: "Dense and powerful 2016 Chianti Classico with a deep and rich palate of fruit that is tight and compact. Lots of polished tannins to frame the wine. Full-bodied. The spice, bark, and dried-mushroom character highlights the ripe and luscious fruit. Drink or hold." 4/19
94 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "The rich texture shows off the cherry, berry and earth flavors, with a backbone of lively acidity and dense, ripe tannins creating tension between this red's elegance and power. Elements of iron, tobacco and Mediterranean herbs complete the flavor profile. Shows fine balance and length. Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera and Colorino. Best from 2022 through 2040." 05/20
