Fèlsina Chianti Classico Riserva "Berardenga" '15

Fattoria di Fèlsina has become a recognized name in Tuscany. Since 1966 they have been in the Chianti Classico region where the result is age worthy and complex Chianti bottlings that showcases a uniqueness in depth and richness. They are considered pioneers for their removal of white grapes in their Chianti blend, minimizing any additional blending of local grapes to truly focus on Sangiovese. During a tough time for viticulture in Tuscany where many were searching for a new identity, throughout the Super Tuscan movement, Fèlsina focused on what was right in front of them and continue to remain transparent in their sense of tradition and developed ideals. In the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, northeast of Siena and south of the Chianti Classico zone, their flagship bottling comes from these vineyard sites. In the Southeast corner of Tuscany, this area excudes wines that are rich and full of layers with great weight on the palate; this is a serious Chianti! This is fragrant and floral with dark berries on the nose. Medium bodied, firm and silky tannins and a fresh, clean finish. A driven and linear Chianti Classico; the backbone of fresh acidity gives this focus. This is a great wine for understanding that not all Chianti are the same and continue to be further removed from the initial concept of what we once knew to be in a wicker-based bottling. The focus on the Berardenga commune shows off the breadth and versatility of Sangiovese that Tuscany has to offer.
