Initially this offers typical damp earth, forest floor and floral, notes framing the slightly peachy raspberry coulis fruit with a hint of vanilla but with air this turns cola and rootbeer like with an emerging fungal note and gamy edge. Rich and round in the mouth with very finely polished tannins and tons of acid with a classic medium body with earthy, tobacco and almond tinged strawberry fruit. Kind of gentle but still classically styled but the moldy edge detracts from the wines. Tasted 3 times with consistent results. 83pts

Resin or plastic wrap with cherries underneath and licorice on the nose. Crannberry and raspberry fruit with stone and mineral on the short finish. Good aciditc structure. Seems slightly flawed.

A nice improvement since my last bottle. This Felsina Chianti Riserva displayed floral aromas with blackberry fruit, clove and old cedar. On the palate it showed raspberry, herbal tea leaves and sour citrus rind. The body is medium and the finish is long with lemony, sour cherry.

At first I thought this wine would redeem itself but instead it got worse with time. Upon first opening, a nose of Cherry, Mint, herbal tea and manure. Followed by raspberry fruit, cut grass and minerals. Excellent acidity but a little lighter body than expected from Chianti with a short finish. However, with time the nose picked up the same off putting almost cardboard and then described as dirty socks by my wife... Oh God she's right. Maybe it's a point in this wines life but after two tastings, I'm disappointed.
