2013 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva
Vinous 93 points! Wine & Spirits 92 points!
Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva is a gorgeous 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. The Riserva is made from vines 50 years or older.
“A deep, powerful wine, the 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva has quite a bit of depth for a cool, late-ripening vintage. Sage, tobacco, menthol, smoke and dark cherry hit the palate in a deep, beautifully layered Chianti Classico endowed with real personality and class. This is another terrific wine from Fèlsina. Hints of leather, smoke and licorice reappear on the deeply expressive, virile finish.”—Vinous, 93 points!
Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva is deep ruby red in color with a beautiful nose of dark cherries, plums, berries, spices and violets. It is medium-full in body with moderate acidity, silky tannins and intense minerality. Aged for 12 months in small and medium oak casks, it is nicely balanced to enjoy now or to cellar for 12-15 years. The finish is rich, long and polished.
Enjoy Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva with veal, pasta, osso buco, and aged cheeses.
