Fattoria di Felsina Chianti Classico Berardenga Rancia Riserva 1995

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose was perfectly matured with ripe cherry, demi-glace, dusty potpourri, moist fall leaves and hints of cinnamon. On the palate it was soft as silk with youthful vibrancy and dark red fruits that seemed to envelope the senses. A hint of pepper and spice was ushered along by classic Tuscan acidity that lasted through the finish. This is an excellent example of aged Chianti at its prime.

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
