Fattoria di Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Riserva 2009

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose was thrilling with crushed strawberry, fall leaves, wild herbs and hints of animal musk. On the palate, it was medium-bodied with lush fruit and silky textures contrasting it's broad structure. Flavors of red berry, orange zest, hints of cedar and herbal tea filled the senses. The finish turned dry, yet saturating fruits lingered through the close. This is drinking now with a good decant but should get even better over the next ten to fifteen years. (91 points)

Fèlsina. A name reaching back to Etruscan times. A feeling that infuses the air, in harmony with the quality of the light, with the earth’s scent and the fragrance of the breezes, with the march of the seasons and night time silences. Before the eye that ranges unencumbered in all directions, a metaphysical landscape takes shape. A wondrous unfolding of hills, none blocking its neighbour, all offering spacious spectra of colour, yellow to indigo, in luminous waves rolling to a horizon majestically profiled with an ancient volcano, Monte Amiata, beloved of the Etruscans, that enigmatic race that first offered the vine and the olive to the early civilization of the Italic peninsula. This en-lightened land lived an extraordinary moment in Italy’s history, witnessing, if only for a few moments, the dream come true of an ideal city: Siena. Siena of the 13th and 14th centuries, where nature and art crowned the creative genius of those dwelling in such favoured spaces. Read less
