The Marchesi Mazzei historic estate of Castello di Fonterutoli is located 5km south of Castellina in Chianti and sits on 650 hectares of land. The combination of four decades of research and extensive knowledge of the estate’s environment from more than six centuries of living and working at Fonterutoli has allowed Mazzei to select five main vineyard sites, each having a distinctive terroir. Today, the wines of Fonterutoli are world-renowned and are the benchmark of the Chianti Classico region.The continuous search for new challenges, and the unwavering quest for excellence has pushed the Mazzei family to expand its horizons toward new viticultural and wine-making frontiers, beyond Chianti Classico, into Maremma Toscana with their Tenuta Belguardo estate, and in south-eastern Sicily with their Zisola estate.
Castello di Fonterutoli estate offers 12 country-chic rooms inspired by the colors of Chianti and restored with authentic taste by the family architect, Agnese Mazzei. All the rooms are located in the historic homes of the Fonterutoli hamlet, the true heart of the estate since centuries, and provide the special feeling of "living in a Tuscan country village".The hamlet houses the Fattoria, Roseto, Limonaia and Carpentiere historic homes, where all of the rooms are located, as well as the Enoteca di Fonterutoli where wine tastings are held, and the Osteria di Fonterutoli Restaurant, both only few steps away from any of our rooms.Ranging in size from 70 to 200 square feet (20 square meters to 60 square meters), all of the rooms boast their own personality with charming, comfortable bedrooms, individual bathrooms, village views, and panoramic countryside vistas. They all maintain the ambiance of a quintessential Chianti country house. Ancient terra cotta floors, exposed ceiling beams, and precious family antiques provide a warm and inviting atmosphere, making Fonterutoli an ideal environment in which to savor Tuscan country life.
