Tasting Notes

The 2008 Mix 36 Toscana is a blend of the 36 different Sangiovese clones planted on the property. Layers of ripe red fruit, flowers, spices and licorice caress the palate as this silky, totally refined wine opens up in the glass. The 2008 impresses for its elegant personality and sense of refinement. Although the wine is delicious today, I am curious to see how it develops in bottle, as the fruit is still very primary. This is an impressive showing from Fonterutoli. The Mix 36 spent 18 months in 500 liter barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028.

Provenance

This wine collection, containing just over three thousand bottles, arrives from an avid wine collector who started in the 1980s. This collector toured the world with a personal goal of learning as possible about the world’s top wine regions; eventually becoming a Certified Specialist of Wine with the Society of Wine Educators. Most wines in this collection were sourced directly from local wine stores or imported directly from the wine producer. Wines were stored in a controlled environment with dual refrigeration units.
