Food Pairings for Fattoria di Felsina Fontalloro
At Italian dinner in Tokyo, September 2009. Color thick, dense garnet. Hints of spice, tobacco, flowers on the nose, Extremely well balanced, with very good length, acidity and well-knit tannins. Minerality was surprisingly elegant, as were its dark fruit characteristics. Almost a feminine nature. I hadn't remembered having the wine before, but when it entered my glass, and I smelled and tasted it, I flashed back to a time in Florence at the beginning of this decade when I had an earlier vintage.
Fruity and powdery/grainy. Nice complexity and a little on the tangy side.
Dusty sweet red fruits, saw dust and barnyard on the nose. On the palate i found strawberry fruit and fig with minerals and herbs. It was at one soft yet drying with fine tannins. A good bottle that should be even better with time.
Clear ruby red in color. Earthy mineral and pepper on the nose. Tart cherry, red berries and spice. Nice Chianti.
No tasting notes but we all enjoyed this wine at our last tasting
Dirty mineral nose. Very light tannins, medium acid and body. Red cherry, minerals, medium concentration, interesting! Not just a food quaffer like typical Chianti. $20
Excellent Chianti. Nice structure, not too heavy. Good fruit, but somewhat tangy at the end. A very nice bottle of wine for less than $20.

Tuscany, ItalyFelsina Chianti Classico Riserva is a gorgeous wine from this famous appellation of Tuscany. Fattoria di Felsina has long been one of the great names in Tuscany. Based in the Chianti Classico region, Felsina produces one of the finest ranges of ageworthy and complex Chianti bottlings. Unlike many of their neighbors, Felsina has never succumbed to the temptation to produce "new age" wines blended with Cabernet or Merlot. Felsina wines are classic Chianti, 100% Sangiovese. The Riserva is made from vines 50 years or older. Antonio Galloni for Wine Advocate rated this red wine gem 92 points, saying "the wine is singing today, but it will be even more delicious in another year or two." If only we had more of it to offer!Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva is deep ruby red in color with a beautiful nose of dark cherries, plums, berries, spices and violets. Medium-full in body with moderate acidity and silky tannins, this red offers flavors of black cherry, blackberry and mocha, with well integrated sweet oak. Aged for 12 months in small and medium oak casks, it is nicely balanced to enjoy now or to cellar for 7-8 years. The finish is rich, long and polished.Enjoy Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva with veal, pasta, osso bucco, and aged cheeses.
The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva is simply beautiful. Everything is in gorgeous balance as dark cherries, plums, violets and spices come together in a fresh, vibrant expression of Sangiovese. The wine is singing today, but it will be even more delic... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Fattoria di Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva 750ml
Beautiful aromas of crushed berries and dried flowers follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and an aftertaste of mineral, berry and cherry. All in finesse. Very well-done. Best after 2002.
Lavender and blackberry aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body, with a solid core of fruit and a tangy aftertaste of citrus fruit and dried cherry. Best after 2009. 15,000 cases made. -JS ** Only 11 in Stock ** ** Some Labels Wine Stained **
Silky smooth, with rich, fresh blackberry character. Medium-bodied, with a clean mineral finish. A bit simple. Drink now.
The 2004 Chianti Classico, a lively medium ruby, is fresh and vibrant, with gorgeous aromatics and plenty of fruit, showing excellent length, fine tannins and a delicate personality. It is sure to provide much pleasure over the next five or so years, especially at the dinner table, where it has proven over the years to be a superb food wine. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012.
Johannisbeeren, Kirschen, Vanille, voller Körper, reife, feine Tannine, langer, fruchtiger Abgang. In seiner Jugend eher verschlossen. Braucht viel Zeit um seine Qualitäten und die Vielschichtigkeit seines Charakters voll auszudrücken.
