Winemaking Notes

All vineyard work from pruning, leaf plucking, bunch thinning and harvesting is carried out by hand. The wines are fermented in cone-shaped stainless steel vats (at 32 degrees Celsius), high yield excellent colour extraction, sweet and elegant tannins and preserve the aromatic components of the wines. The wines are transferred to small French and American oak barrels following the alcoholic fermentation with the malo-lactic fermentation following immediately and remain there for 9 months.

The grape varieties are handled separately until the final assemblage made just prior to bottling. The personality of the Fonterutoli wines has been perfected over the years through constant research and innovation in complete respect for the estate’s culture, history and accumulated technical experience.


Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) is the second of four classifications of wine recognised by the government of Italy and was introduced in 1992 as an equivalent to the French vin de pays. IGT regualtions permit more freedom than DOC or DOCG and are therefore more prevalent in the south, where there are few DOC/DOCG wines of note. IGT rules also permit grapes to be sourced from a large area, a key factor when creating brands.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Fonterutoli is located 5 km south of Castellina in Chianti (Siena), on the hills facing the Val d'Elsa, in the heart of the Chianti Classico. Owned by the Mazzei family since 1435, it still retains its original form, that of a tranquil country village: a cluster of houses, the church of San Miniato and the villa, built at the end of the 1500s where the medieval castle once stood.

Today, the estate boasts a total surface area of 470 hectares, of which 79 are devoted to specialized vineyards, divided between four areas: Fonterutoli, Siepi, Badiola and Belvedere, located at between 230 and 500 meters above sea level and exposed to the south and southwest.

The soil structure is the result of the disintegration of limestone and sandstone boulders and is very rocky, so much so that Fonterutoli wine is also known as "vino dei sassi", or rock wine. These conditions require respect for the delicate environmental balance and a production volume of less than 40 hl per hectare, which guarantees high quality and a distinctive character. The vineyards perfect exposure to sunlight, the excellent pedological and microclimatic conditions and the density of the vines, progressively brought up to over 7,000 plants per hectare, result in the production of complex, elegant and powerful wines.

The character of the wines of the Castello di Fonterutoli has been perfected over the years thanks to continual innovation, in harmony with the wineries culture, history and heritage of technical expertise.
