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. 90 Points -Wine Spectator

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. Before the eye that ranges unencumbered in all directions, a metaphysical landscape takes shape. A wondrous unfolding of hills, none blocking its neighbour, al... Read more
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

The 2007 Chianti Classico is a sweet, super-ripe wine with an enticing core of fruit. The heat of the vintage has filled out the wine nicely. Although the acidity is still relatively high, this doesn't look to be an especially long-lived wine. That should hardly matter, though, as readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem. In 2007 the Chianti Classico is a selection of fruit from eleven different vineyards harvested between the end of September and early October. The wine was mostly aged in cask, with about 10% seeing smaller neutral French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015.

Tuscany, ItalyFelsina Chianti Classico is a beautiful 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 grapes from vines 50 years or older located in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, northeast of Siena. Antonio Galloni for Wine Advocate rated this red wine gem 89 points and predicted that "readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem." Good luck!Felsina Chianti Classico is deep ruby red in color with a beautiful nose of wild red berries, plums, spices and violets. Medium 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 5-6 years. The finish is rich, long and polished.Enjoy Felsina Chianti Classico with veal, pasta, osso bucco, and aged cheeses.

Dark ruby in color. This is a very enjoyable and quaffable chianti. Very well balanced, notes of nice bright red fruits: cranberry, cherry, and raspberry. Subtle oak is also present as well as nice spice and some smooth, chalky tanins that add som... John Sweeney. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Fattoria di Felsina Chianti Classico 750ml
