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.

The winery is located within the most south-eastern part of the Chianti Classico zone near Siena. In 1961,... More »

Ripe, rich, dark fruit and sweet. Round, long and full-bodied.

For many people this was the wine of the night and elicted the most superlatives - powerful and explosive, all kinds of floral notes on the nose with depth underneath, a fantastic expression of Sangiovese. Really had the kind of acid that begs for food. Dark nearly opaque color, dark berries, dark chocolate. Finish just so lasting and so much going on. Excited for the next bottle!

Generous from the get-go, it's framework of darkly hued, richly nuanced Berardenga Sangiovese comes shining thorough. Ripe black cherry, earthydamp forest floor, tobacco and a hint of spice harmonize to create an alluring aromatic essence. Dense and full bodied on the palate with a lovely level of richness punctuated with nicely balancing acidity followed by excellent tannin integration and a deliciously long finish complete the package.

Tightly wound right now, this blood red Sangiovese promises to blossom into a stunning wine in a few years. If you can't wait, decant for as long as possible before giving it a try. After 3 hours, it had begun to show the depths of its flavors.

Amazing. Will probably get better with age, but great now. Beautifully balanced red and black fruit, great nose, and seamless tannins and a long finish. Very nice.

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.
