BACKGROUND

For 26 generations, the Mazzei family has been producing benchmark Italian wines from their historic Castello di Fonterutoli estate in Tuscany and more recently in the Maremma, Sicily and the Veneto. The passion, commitment and expertise that goes into these expressive wines is a reflection of the Mazzei’s spirit of innovation and respect for each property’s unique terroir. Since the 1400’s the Mazzei’s have been producing wine; making it one of the oldest running Italian companies - of any kind! Their ancestry is closely woven not only into Tuscany’s winemaking history, but as well as to this venerated region’s political and cultural past.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Four beautiful properties make up the Mazzei portfolio. Castello di Fonterutoli in historic Chianti Classico, Tuscany remains the historic home of Mazzei. An enthusiasm for discovery has led to the purchase of Belguardo in the Maremma, which borders the Tuscan coast and Zisola in Noto, Sicily. Giovanni Mazzei has recently taken over his family’s estate, Villa Marcello, in the Veneto, adding classic Prosecco to the esteemed Mazzei portfolio.

WINEMAKING

A mix of 36 distinct Sangiovese biotypes. Grapes were hand harvested beginning on October 16, then fermented in temperature-controlled tanks at 79-82˚F. The wine underwent 15 days of maceration.

AGING

Aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels followed by an additional 9 months in bottle.

TASTING NOTES

Deep ruby in color. Complex aromas of fresh red berries on the nose. Extremely elegant on the palate with red fruit notes and a persistent finish.
