Chianti Classico Riserva Felsina Tuscany 2007
My thoughts on Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva 2007, from my online review at http://www.dalluva.com/wine-journal/5-italian-wines-that-know-how-to-party/ Felsina arguably makes the most popular, food-friendly Chianti Classico ever crafted. You’ll find this very quaffable red on the menus of Italian restaurants in America everywhere. Save yourself time searching for the perfect party red and reach for Felsina’s Riserva 2007 – you can’t go wrong. On the nose you’ll find ripe red fruits like raspberries and bing cherries, light fennel and a hint of smokiness from the aging barrels. The palate goes wild with more raspberry, crabapple, a touch of cranberry, and aromas of violets. The acidity is balanced with the fruit and tannin, and the finish is smooth and long. You’ll notice that this wine evolves beautifully in the glass over time, becoming more elegant with expanding aromas of leather and more fennel. Felsina’s 2007 riserva is truly a classic in the Chianti style. It’s sure to be a talking point as your guests savor this wine.
