Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Riserva 2017
Region: Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Notes: Vegetarian, Vegan
This wine is ruby red in colour. On the nose, it presents a vivid bouquet of blossom, succulent black cherry and blueberry, cloves and a hint of cocoa. The palate has an impressive structure, it is fleshy and powerful with a bright acidity, evident but supple tannins, and a lovely minerality that carries on to the long finish.
The vineyards are located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, in the south-eastern part of the Chianti Classico appellation, north-east of Siena. Almost exclusively with a south-western exposure, they sprawl across ventilated slopes at an altitude ranging from 320 to 420 metres above sea level. Geologically, the terrains are mixed: in the higher parts the soil is predominantly rock quartz and calcareous alberese mixed with alluvial pebbles; sandstone and loam characterize the vineyards on the edge of the Colli Senesi in the direction of the Crete Senesi.
This 470 hectare estate is located northeast of Siena, in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga on the southern border of the Chianti Classico production area. Fèlsina epitomises the powerful style of southern Chianti, where the wines are stylistically more akin to those from Montalcino
