Borgo Fonterutoli (Font-eh-root-olee) has earned one of's highest and most enthusiastic recommendations.  The hamlet, surrounded on all sides by the vineyards, olive groves, forests, lavendar fields and grazing lands of the Mazzei Estate, is a fascinating, evocative cluster of gorgeous medieval buildings, restored to their original condition but refitted with all the modern comforts.  Here also you will find the famous "cantina" where many of the very best Chianti wines are bottled and crated for distribution to wine lovers the world over.

Borgo Fonterutoli is located 5 km south of the busy Chianti town of Castellina in Chianti, on the hills facing the immensely beautifully Val d'Elsa in the heart of the Chianti Classico. Owned by the  Mazzei family since 1435, it still retains its original form, that of a tranquil country village: a cluster of houses, the church of San Miniato and the villa, built at the end of the 1500s where the medieval castle once stood.

On the main square next to the ancient church is the family villa, surrounded by the charming and luxurious village apartments and B&B suites managed as Luxury B&B that can be rented individually or as a single unit.  Close at hand guests will find a beautifully designed enoteca where they can purchase the estate wines and a variety of "Mazzei" lavender products.

Ask to book cooking lesson or Chianti wine tour during your stay at Borgo Fonterutoli.
