Natalie's Score: 90/100

Full-bodied and juicy Chianti Classico with rich aromas and flavours of black cherry, blackberry, smoke and just enough oak. Nicely balanced with a satisfying finish. Supple and smooth, and finishing nicely with oak spice and black fruits. The Mazzei family has been producing wine since 1435.

Chianti Classico food pairings: beef roast, grilled T-bone steak, hard Italian cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Yum. This wine is loaded with black cherry, plum, briar, warm spice and herbs. There is a hit of mushroom and licorice on the finish. Bypass the pasta and pit it against roasted game meat for a truly awesome pairing. 92 points.
Mazzei Fonterutoli 2015 is a full-bodied and lush Chianti Classico from the Tuscany wine region. Look for smoky blackberries, earthy violets and tobacco leaf on this elegant juicy red made from 90% Sangiovese with some Merlot and Malvasia Nera. Pair with asiago cheese or pepper steak. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
