Fattoria di Felsina:
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.

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

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 91+ points, saying it "possesses wonderful depth in its black cherries, licorice, tar, smoke and leather." 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. It is medium-full in body with moderate acidity, silky tannins and intense minerality. Aged for 12 months in small and medium oak casks, it is nicely balanced to enjoy now or to cellar for 10-12 years. The finish is rich, long and polished.Enjoy Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva with veal, pasta, osso bucco, and aged cheeses.
