Owned by the descendants of Philip Mazzei—a friend of Jefferson and gun-runner for the American Revolution—Fonterutoli is simply one of the top 10 producers in all of Chianti Classico. “Dried violets and lavender, cedar, cloves, vanilla and tobacco. Full body with ripe and chewy tannins, but this remains focused and dialed-in thanks to mouthwatering acidity. Not to mention beautiful blue fruit that comes to the surface, particularly on the long finish.” This Gran Selezione can hang with any great Brunello, any day of the week, Jack!

Dried violets and lavender, cedar, cloves, vanilla and tobacco. Full body with ripe and chewy tannins, but this remains focused and dialed-in thanks to mouthwatering acidity. Not to mention beautiful blue fruit that comes to the surface, particularly on the long finish. Drink in 2021.
