Welcome to Episode 1160 in which Marc Millon interviews Francesco Mazzei of Castello di Foneterutoli in this installment of Wine, Food & Travel with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.

More about today’s winery:
The Mazzei family have been leaders in Chianti Classico since the winery was established in 1435. The family has resided at Castello di Fonterutoli, the home of their famous wines, for 25 generations. Today the winery is run by brothers Francesco and Filippo Mazzei, as well as Filippo’s son Giovanni. Their global history stretches back to Ser Lapo Mazzei, who authored the first document mentioning “Chianti wine.” Marchesi Mazzei, the wine brand of the family, has continued to grow and modernize, focusing on innovation and sustainability and acquiring estates in other regions of Italy, while still respecting and building upon the history of the region and the family.
