Felsina Description

Chianti Classico is the cornerstone of the estate’s production. The vineyards are located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, in the southeastern part of the Chianti Classico appellation, to the southeast of Siena. Almost exclusively with a southwestern exposure, they sprawl across ventilated slopes at an altitude ranging from 320-420 meters 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; strataform sandstone and loam characterize the vineyards on the edge of the Colli Senesi in the direction of the Crete Senesi. First vintage 1967.

100% Sangiovese. After the quality-selected clusters are de-stemmed and pressed, the must is fermented and macerated in stainless steel for 12-15 days with programmed punchdowns and daily pumpovers. In March-April, the new wine goes into medium-size Slavonian oak barrels, and a small percentage into twice and thrice used oak barrels; after 12 months of maturation, the final blend is assembled, bottled, and ages in glass a minimum of 3 months.

Wine Advocate: 89 Points

The entry-level 2020 Chianti Classico Berardenga is all Sangiovese aged in Slavonian oak for a quick 12 months. The hot-vintage wine delivers cherry, cola, dried herb and rosemary over a lean to mid-weight texture. It ends with whiffs of fresh spice and barbecue smoke. This is an ample production of 280,000 bottles. Anticipated Maturity: 2022-2025
