    Bright red-ruby. Reticent aromas of bitter cherry, blackberry, currant, violet and minerals. Supersweet and concentrated, but currently quite backward due to its rather powerful tannin and acid structure. Tight, bright flavors of blackberry and violet. Finishes with a firm tannic spine. This will be slow to open and should be long-lived. Includes the riserva fruit in '97.

    Just as expected from Felsina: a superb Chianti Classico, displaying lots of cherry, berry and wet earth character. The wine is medium-bodied, with medium, silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish.

Felsina, for all of its current, well-deserved respect and fame, is the product of an ancient and humanitarian history. In the 12th century this estate was a roadside hospital directed by Benedictine monks who tended to the pilgrims and merchants traveling the Strata de Rancia.

The winery is located within the most south-eastern part of the Chianti Classico zone near Siena. In 1961, Domenico Poggiali purchased the property and 57 hectares of vineyards. His son-in-law, Giuseppe Mazzocolin, currently runs the estate with the assistance of renowned oenologic consultant Franco Bernabei and vineyard overseer Agostino Buracchi. Together, they have wrought a portfolio of wines that recognize the mystical world of Sangioveto.

The Cru Rancia and the Fontalloro are two of the premiere wines coming out of Tuscany today.
