Producer Notes

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.

Popped and poured. Dark red/black color. Aromas of black fruits and some smoke. Big, juicy flavors with nice acidity and softening tannins. Many years ahead for this wine, but in a really good place right now!

From a 3L format, decanted over the course of dinner. Spice, cherries and blueberries, earth, tannins apparent but not at all unpleasant. Some dinner guests initially scoffed at "Chianti," but raved all through dinner after trying. Wish I had more. Drinks great now, could also lay down a couple more years no problem.

This is a serious chianti...Flowers on the nose, dark cherries and minerals on the body with smooth mid-length finish...fleshed out with air. This will live a long time.

Blackberry, truffle and smoke on the nose. Really fresh as well. Extremely well balanced with fine tannins in the mouth. Moderate finish. One of the better Chianti's I've had in a while. Well worth it.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
