"A remarkable combination of intensity and elegance, this wine displays ripe red berry fruit, blackberry, blackcurrant, mocha, Morello cherry and a touch of liquorice alongside a muscular structure, fine tannins, balanced with pleasant acidity and a rich, long finish." —importer

Blend: 92% Sangiovese, 8% Malvasia Nera and Colorino
"A fresh and fruity red with dried strawberry, cherry and citrus fruit. Full body, firm and silky tannins. There's a citrus, salty undertone. Shows structure and length. Needs a year or two to soften." —JamesSuckling.com

"The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli is a standout wine and I prefer it to the 2012 vintage and the 2010 vintage (that I reviewed twice over the course of a year with divergent scores). Of these wines, this vintage offers the broadest sense of intensity and generosity. The wine is also distinguished by dark fruit and spice that stand tall with clear identities. The best fruit from the estate's various vineyard sites are selected for this wine. This careful selection process makes it possible to dedicate the best fruit to a wine like this despite varying vintage conditions." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Fonterutoli is dark, juicy and enveloping, with gorgeous textural richness and plenty of nuance. The flavors are bold and intense, yet there is good freshness woven throughout. Sweet red cherry, plum and spice are all pushed forward in an exotic, flamboyant wine loaded with personality. The very best qualities of the 2011 vintage come through in this radiant, beautifully crafted Chianti Classico from Fonterutoli." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
