2018 Felsina Chianti Classico Berardenga
James Suckling 93 points! Wine Advocate 91 points!
Felsina Chianti Classico Berardenga is a beautiful wine from this famous appellation of Tuscany. Fattoria di Felsina has long been one of the great names in Tuscany. Based in the Chianti Classico region, Felsina produces one of the finest ranges of ageworthy and complex Chianti bottlings. Unlike many of their neighbors, Felsina has never succumbed to the temptation to produce "new age" wines blended with Cabernet or Merlot. Felsina wines are classic Chianti, 100% Sangiovese grapes from vines 50 years or older located in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, northeast of Siena.
gThe Fèlsina 2018 Chianti Classico Berardenga is a toned and delicate expression of 100% Sangiovese from a vintage that produced beautifully subtle and understated wines. It shows good momentum driven by dark fruit, blackberry and summer cherry. The intensity of these aromas is downplayed and rendered less pronounced, adding elegance and fragility. Pretty background notes of spice and balsam herb add an extra layer of complexity. An ample 280,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2020-2026.h—Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 91 points!
Felsina Chianti Classico is deep ruby red in color with a beautiful nose of wild red berries, plums, spices and violets. Medium in body with moderate acidity and silky tannins, this red offers flavors of black cherry, blackberry and mocha, with well-integrated sweet oak. Aged for 12 months in small and medium oak casks, it is nicely balanced to enjoy now or to cellar for 5-6 years. The finish is rich, long and polished.
Enjoy Felsina Chianti Classico with veal, pasta, osso buco, and aged cheeses.
