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. – Description Read more »

  • Another in my series of reports focusing on the wines I was able to sample at the prowein event held in March of this year in Dusseldorf, Germany. Today we’re talking about Chianti Classico, soon to be followed by thoughts on a line-up of the new Gran Selezione wines. I’m not sure we need yet another level for Chianti, but that too shall wait fo... Read More

  • Fattoria di Felsina Chianti Classico Berardenga 2011


    100% Sangiovese Perfumed and floral on the nose, which is filled with aromas of spiced blueberries, minerals, and sweet leather notes. A touch soft, or rather fleshy in the mouth, this is rich with soft, ripe tannins that makes for a bit of a chewy mouthful. Theres plenty of bright cherry and slightly darker berry fruit on the palate that is n... Read More

  • Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico 2010


    What a lovely nose, quite herbal, spiky, and complex with a fine blend of dried herbs, hot stones, sweet spices, leather, cranberry and some worcestershire sauce all given added lift by a hint of VA. Sweet yet compact in the mouth with finely ripe but classically angular Sangiovese tannins. With air this gains some weight, and loses a bit of cl... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • So far I’ve worked my way through a pretty impressive set of wines that would make for some splendid gifting. I’ve covered Cabernet, Pinot Noir, the wines of France and today I turn my attention towards Italy. Without a doubt my favorite wine producing country; Italy is home to more variety and styles of wine than anyplace else on the planet. As... Read More

  • Fattoria di Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Riserva 2009


    The nose was thrilling with crushed strawberry, fall leaves, wild herbs and hints of animal musk. On the palate, it was medium-bodied with lush fruit and silky textures contrasting it's broad structure. Flavors of red berry, orange zest, hints of cedar and herbal tea filled the senses. The finish turned dry, yet saturating fruits lingered thro... Read More

  • Fattoria di Felsina Chianti Classico Berardenga Rancia Riserva 1995


    The nose was perfectly matured with ripe cherry, demi-glace, dusty potpourri, moist fall leaves and hints of cinnamon. On the palate it was soft as silk with youthful vibrancy and dark red fruits that seemed to envelope the senses. A hint of pepper and spice was ushered along by classic Tuscan acidity that lasted through the finish. This is an e... Read More

  • Felsina Extra Virgin Olive Oil NV


    Felsina Olive Oil tasting from olive harvest 2011 showed the unique flavors brought by different types of olives:Pendolino 2011 was golden and delicate; Leccino 2011 was my favorite with grassy flavors; Moraiolo 2011 was another golden, rich oil; and the Raggiolo 2011 had earthy and grassy flavors. The winery sells sets of the different oils. Read More
