The Mazzei 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello Fonterutoli shows a silky and fine consistency with bright aromas of wild cherry and cassis. This vintage is downplayed and subtle, surprisingly so, but also ethereal. That delicate bouquet is framed by light touches of smoke and spice, although the wine's intensity is carefully measured overall. These results should flesh out with more time in bottle.
Score: 93 points -- Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate, 2022
