Castello di Fonterutoli

Castello di Fonterutoli, a renowned name in the world of wines, is situated in the heart of Chianti Classico. The winery's unique soil of Alberese and sandstone dissolution provides a complex, mineral core to the grapes. The grapes are handpicked from 114 different parcels, each contributing to the diversity in flavor and aroma of the wines. They are then turned into wine and aged separately in wood barrels, enhancing their bouquet and complexity. The winery's excellence is recognized globally, making it a reference point for Chianti Classico. It is not just wine that makes Fonterutoli outstanding, but also its production of Chianti Classico DOP Castello di Fonterutoli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The oil is extraordinary in its refinement and personality, thanks to the blend of frantoio, leccino, noraiolo, and pendolino olives. The proprietary olive press, which operates in an oxygen-free environment, ensures the purity and quality of the oil. Still at Fonterutoli, Carla Mazzei is devoted to cultivating Lavender, the essence of which is used to create a line of cosmetic products carrying her name. This dedication to quality and diversity makes Fonterutoli a unique and cherished name in the world of wine and beyond.
