Felsina, Chianti Classico
Highest ever ratings for newly released 2016 vintage
In recent years, Chianti has often been overshadowed by Super-Tuscan blockbusters. Anyone who has tried Felsina's benchmark Sangioveses, however, will know there is very serious wine to be had at extremely reasonable prices from this top-flight Chianti estate. Felsina's Fontalloro is IGT Toscana because it is a blend of Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi. They consider it their purest expression of Sangiovese and who am I to argue. The high altitude Rancia vineyard has consistently produced some of the highest rated wines in Chianti, for over three decades. These are both sensational wines.
"Felsina is a reference-point property for readers who want to discover the best Tuscany has to offer. Prices remain exceedingly fair considering the quality of what is in the bottle". - Antonio Galloni
2016 is an outstanding vintage for Tuscany and Felsina's latest releases, are their highest rated ever.
