Felsina Fontalloro Toscana IGT 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red colour, good intensity and rich colour tonality. Spicy nose, intense notes of tobacco and wet soil. On the palate, nice, consistent and medium soft tannins, due to the appropriate aging in oak. Nice consistency, structure and race in the aftertaste.

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

Tight, leather, earth, mint, a bit of smoky oak. Super focused with finesse. Elegant. Lovely savory edges. Licorice, huge finessed finish. This is very good. Layers of precise fruit, palate-staining flavor of black berry. Closes down on the finish, this needs some time to soften and open. 92 pts
