Winemaker's Notes:

Golden yellow, with coppery highlights. Peach, apricot, pineapple and tropical fruit aromas. There is consistency on the palate, softness and elegance nicely structured by the oak barrels. This is a wine with great balance, favorable acidity and a well-harmonized residual sugar. Long in the mouth.
My Notes:

About Fattoria di Felsina:

In the 17 published editions of Gambero Rosso, Italy’s acclaimed wine rating guide, this Tuscan estate has won the coveted Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) award 17 times. They are a favorite of IWM, Robert Parker, and any Tuscan wine enthusiast. And they did it by revealing the true essence of the Sangiovese grape and the Chianti Classico terroir. What this tells us is that this is a winery of consistency, producing Chianti Classicos with the ability to age up to two decades for the right vintage. Much like the great Brunello estates, it is the marriage of an ideal microclimate and the uncompromising commitment of a dedicated staff that educes the full character of Tuscany's noble grape, even in off vintages. Even more importantly, this is a producer who creates compelling wines and releases them at contained prices, making Felsina accessible to all wine enthusiasts and one of Italy's greatest values!
