Felsina Berardenga I Sistri Chardonnay 2020
Region: Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Notes: Vegetarian, Vegan
Deep straw yellow in colour, `I Sistri` has a classic ripe-fruit Chardonnay nose, with a blend of tropical fruit, vanilla and appealing notes of spice. It displays elegant structure with a fresh acidity and a superb finish.
The grapes are grown on vineyards covering 4.72 hectares of Chardonnay vines on the nearby estate of Farnetella, owned by the winery. New vineyards have been planted at Felsina in the area that rises from the Ombrone river up to the Poggiolo farm where soils are looser than in the Chianti Classico appellation
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
