Fèlsina Chianti Classico Riserva 2016
Front and back


One of this winery's most highly esteemed products, to put it simply, thanks to the exceptional balance it shows between sinew and roundness. The Chianti Classico Riserva from Fèlsina (a name that's Etruscan in origin, denoting places of board and lodging) emanates from the best Castelnuovo Berardenga vineyards, in the south-eastern part of the Chianti Classico production area. Almost entirely facing the south-west, at an altitude ranging from 320 to 420 metres above sea level, on alluvial terrain rich in sand and loam, these are vineyard characteristics which will benefit the wine's structure and verticality.

Bottled since 1967, this Chianti Classico Riserva, a single varietal Sangiovese, is not only a benchmark for this denomination, but also offers an excellent price-quality ratio. The vineyard, planted in the 1970s, benefits from the most modern methods of cultivation and is harvested during the first three weeks of October in order to guarantee a perfect state of ripeness. Maceration of the grapes takes place in steel tanks until spring arrives, when the wine proceeds to age in French oak barrels of second and third use and in medium-sized Slavonian oak casks, where it matures for between 12 and 16 months.

A lovely ruby colour, intense and with garnet glints, this Reserva reveals on the nose floral notes of violets and mallows, and other fruit-driven notes of blackberries and cherries. On a mineral background, it also displays hints of undergrowth, cocoa, oregano and mild spices. We pick up these aromas on the palate too, where we find a full, vertical wine, elegantly tannic and pleasantly mineral. Enveloping and satisfying, with a slightly bitter persistence that indicates this region and invites us to take another sip.
