Editorial Reviews for Felsina Vin Santo Chianti Classico
This opens with a huge bay leaf and vanilla bubblegum tone, the oak here is still obvious with very little fruit in evidence though there are nice tones of earth, tobacco, and prosciutto fat adding some complexity. The texture is creamy and velvetty with lowish acidity and finely polished tannins. The core or bitter black cherry fruit remains with and edge of leather and bitter almond adding some complexity. The texture here is absolutely fascinating though the oaken flavors that accompany the creaminess are a bit much. The softest, oakiest Fontalloro. 87pts
Effusive aromas of vanilla, toffee, coffee crema soar from the glass with deep tones of dried apricot, smoky caramel and butterscotch and a lurking edge of bitter orange peel flambe. In the mouth this retains impressive power yet has fine balance with a thick yet neither cloying or overly sweet character that has lovely depth to it's slightly bitter burnt sugar note and extremely long finish of honey dipped apricot kernels, dried peach and amaretto crunch. Really drinking well and so much better than a bottle 4 years ago. Absolutely delicious 94pts
I think I love Vin Santo, the biggest reason is the number one thing, the few I’ve had really remind me of my Grandfather’s pipe smoke. Amazing what childhood memories do to you. The nose on this was candy sweet with layers of spices and wood. Fruitcake and maple syrup. Then you sip it and the sweetness is nowhere near as prevalent as you’d expect. Instead you taste caramel, peach, clove and cinnamon spice. All carried by a lush full-bodied frame that manages to melt away to a refreshing and clean finish. You could spend the whole night just smelling this glass.
External Reviews for Felsina Vin Santo Chianti Classico
Golden yellow, with coppery highlights. Peach, apricot, pineapple and tropical fruit aromas.Consistency on the palate, softness and elegance nicely structured by the oak barrels.Wine with great balance, favorable acidity and a well-harmonized residual sugar. Long in the mouth.
Leuchtende Bernsteinfarbe. Sein Bukett erinnert an reife und getrocknete Früchte, Aprikosen, Gewürznelken, Muskatnuss und Tabak. Im Gaumen verführerisch süss und samtig mit einer ausgewogenen Säurestruktur und einem langen, aromatischen Abgang.
