Castello di Fonterutoli

The winery


An avantgarde winery


BOOK WINE TOUR & TASTING

The true link between the past and the future, the Fonterutoli Winery dominates the estate and farm slopes looking to Siena from a vantage point, but its heart is beating within.
A modern winery but at the same time the owner of centuries-old knowledge, as only a family member could design: In fact Agnese Mazzei is the designer of the innovative project with low environmental impact, where aesthetics meet functionality.

The architectural project realizes a production project


An important project on three levels, to allow the grapes collected in the plaza to "drop" during the various phases of the wine making process and age in wood barrels in the most natural manner: The force of gravity.
The special 74 wine making steel vats provided with a tapered cylindrical shape and capacity for 100 hl, allow processing the grapes from each parcel separately to preserve their biodiversity and produce a series of small scale wine batches that together with the judicious use of treading and long maceration, allow obtaining wines with exceptional qualities of color and particularly smooth and elegant tannins.

Ensure the wine a natural refinement


At 15 meters of depth, in the vast cellar where more than 3000 oak barrels dwell, the temperature and the right degree of humidity is guaranteed by five completely natural water streams flowing through the naked rock walls.
The Fonterutoli winery is open to everyone and can be visited year round, even during harvest season.
