Le Fonti's 2015 Vito Arturo is a sophisticated Tuscan red wine oozing quality and refinement.

Whereas the Le Fonti's Chianti Classico Riserva is assembled from a selection of the best sites on the slopes at Le Fonti, the Vito Arturo is produced from one particular and very special parcel of vines, giving wines of pronounced opulence. A phenomenal, opulent wine with satin-like tannins.

Le Fonti was bought in the mid 1950s by the Imberti family and the current owners, Franca and Ferdinando also manage a business in Milan but actively follow the work at the estate. They have invested heavily and replanted solely with Sangiovese in the 1990s, and in their search for excellence they appointed young agronomist, Lorenzo Bernini and employ the famed and talented oenologist Paolo Caciorgna. It is particularly warmer here than other Chianti growing areas such as Panzano or Radda, the berries ripen earlier and are perhaps more fleshy and generous.

Luxuriant fruit and spice aromas with rich red fruits, kirsch and violet, and savoury truffle, sweet leather, sandalwood and chocolate base notes, and deep underlying minerality. Velvety and succulent fruit concentration with lovely creamy centre and deep mineral base, finely balanced and integrated tannins; a gently enveloping development with notes of spice, kirsch and chocolate, and a long pure mineral and fruit finish with lifted aromatics.
