Castello di Fonterutoli

Fonterutoli


Located close to the Fonterutoli hamlet 5 kilometers south of Castellina in Chianti, it represents together with Siepi the historic production core of the company.
The vineyards are located at a height of between 420-550 meters and cover a surface of 21 hectares cultivated with Sangiovese and in part with Merlot, Malvasia Nera, and Colorino. The land is characterized by Alberese and Galestro soil with medium limestone mix, very rich in structure and with poor water retention capability. The vineyards have an industrial footprint of between 5800 to 7500 plants per hectare with the vines trained in the Guyot and spur-trained cordon systems. The particular soil and micro climate characteristics of the area permit the production of elegant wines with extraordinary components of bouquet and complexity.
