A long lasting bond unites the Mazzei family with Tuscany and wines since the XI century. Ser Lapo Mazzei is the author of the first known document to use the "Chianti" denomination in 1398; in 1435, when his granddaughter Madonna Smeralda Mazzei married Piero di Agnolo da Fonterutoli, the holding became part of the family's estate. Since then, for 24 generations, the Mazzei family produces wine at Castello di Fonterutoli, which even after its recent expansion still remains the beating heart of the company. The first documented reference to Chianti as a production region is found in correspondence from 16 December 1398 between Ser Lapo Mazzei "the keen notary" and Francesco Datini, "the merchant from Prato". "Payable, on 16 December (1398), 3 florins 26 pennies 8 dinars to Piero di Tino Riccio, for 6 barrels of wine from Chianti ...said produce paid by credit letter of Ser Lapo Mazzei". In their exchanges these two wonderful characters were discussing the deals of the time, the pleasures of life, and obviously the wine, of which Ser Lapo was a great fan and connoisseur.

Robert Parker - 95 See more...
The 2010 Siepi is a monumental wine with towering intensity and opulent aromas of spice, leather and chocolate covered cherry. The texture of this hearty 50-50 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot is infinitely soft and supple. There are many big-boned wines from Italy that can compare to Siepi, but ultimately this wine is distinguished by its own, unique personality. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. The exciting news from Castello di Fonterutoli is the addition of a new wine, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, located above “Riserva” under the revised guidelines of the Chianti Classico denomination. Many estates will bottle a Gran Selezione, but this is the first one I have officially scored.

Polished and expressive, featuring black cherry, black currant, violet and vanilla flavors matched to a solid structure. Intense and balanced, with a lingering finish. Modern and gripping. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2027. 1,600 cases made.
James Suckling - 94 See more...
Very ripe wine with dried-berry and dark-chocolate character. Full body, full, ripe tannins and a juicy finish. It goes on for minutes. Better in 2016.
