Castello Di Fonterutoli Mazzei
The village of Fonterutoli, an ancient Florentine rampart, a few kilometers from Castellina in Chianti, enjoys an extraordinary view of Siena, so close you can distinguish the Torre del Mangia and the shape of the Duomo.
The centuries-old belonging to the Marquises Mazzei has preserved almost unchanged the few houses, the church of San Miniato and the villa, built at the end of 1500 in place of the fortified castle. Here time has stopped retaining the charm of the Middle Ages.
The excellence of the wines of Castello di Fonterutoli is renowned worldwide and is one of the landmarks of all the Chianti Classico.
Fonterutoli also produces the Chianti Classico DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Castello di Fonterutoli, extraordinary for its fineness and personality, thanks to the variety of olive tree mill, leccino, moraiolo and pendolino plants and to a proprietary mill that fringes the olives in absence of oxygen.
Also in Fonterutoli, Carla Mazzei cultivates lavender with dedication, from the essence of which originates the line of cosmetic products that bears her name.
