Vin Santo Chianti Classico. Fattoria di Felsina 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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 2004 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is stunningly beautiful. This is a fairly restrained vintage for the Vin Santo in which some of the wine’s more oxidative qualities are less evident than in other years. Orange peel, burnt sugar, dried flowers and herbs wrap around the generous, inviting finish. Despite its nearly 8 years of age, the 2004 remains very young, with a bright life ahead of it. The wine needs several hours if opened today. Felsina’s Vin Santo is 55% Malvasia, 25% Trebbiano and 20% Sangiovese, aged 7 years in the traditional small Vin Santo casks. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2024.

Bright, pale yellow-gold color. Pear and peach nectar along with strong nutty, caramel, honey and raisin aromas on the nose. Dense, tactile and harmonious, with an exotic candied sweetness to the flavors of dried apricot, toffee and vanillin oak. This wine’s long, smooth finish and lush, pliant texture give it immediate appeal. Much better than the 2003.
