Castello di Fonterutoli Chianti Classico is the estate’s flagship wine and most representative of Fonterutoli’s production. With its deep roots in the territory, it is a reference point for the whole of Chianti Classico.
Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) was the first Italian quality assurance label for wines in 1963, and in common with the French AOC, specifies the geographical area, permitted grape varieties and minimum alcohol level. It may also stipulate the production method, including minimum ageing.
Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wines must meet all DOC requirements, must be bottled in the region of production, and are subject to a Ministry of Agriculture tasting. Each bottle will carry a numbered seal of approval.
