TASTING NOTES

The Felsina Winery is an iconic Chianti Classico winery. Founded in 1966 when Domenico Poggiali acquired the farm during a difficult period for Italian viticulture, he chose to invest in its land and make quality wine. Therefore, Domenico and his son Giuseppe, both passionate about viticulture and skilled businessmen, modernised management of the countryside while retaining the traditions and spirit of a place that remains one of the most famous Italian names in the world. The Sangiovese vineyards, where the grapes used to produce Fontalloro IGT are grown, are located within the territory of Chianti Classico in the upper part of Felsina and in the DOCG zone of Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG. Harvesting is done by hand, at two different times, selecting the best grapes and ageing takes place over 18/22 months in French oak barriques and then in the bottle for 8/12 months before being sold. Toscana Fontalloro IGT from Felsina is made from 100% Sangiovese and it is characterised by a beautiful colour: an intense ruby red. On the nose, it boasts complex aromatic variety: blackcurrants, blackberry mix with clear notes of tobacco, damp earth and liquorice. On the palate, soft tannins, beautiful structure and length. A wine with excellent longevity. It can elevate a tasty Sunday lunch to something special and enhances red meat-based meals and stews. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Felsina

Purchased in 1966 by Domenico Poggiali, the Fèlsina farm has since then offered wines of the highest quality, coming from selected and extremely well-kept grapes, also known internationally thanks to the recognition, over the years of its history, of various awards. Despite the use of modern and innovative production techniques, the family has never abandoned the tradition associated with Tuscan wine. With over 40 hectares of vineyards, the farm is located in the Chianti Classico area. One of the main occupations of the estate has always been linked to the defence of nature, the land and its fertility. The family has always been very attentive to safeguarding the ecosystem, aware of how much man is responsible for the environment around him with his work. In fact, it is no coincidence that over the years experiments have gone in this direction, starting from integrated and biodynamic agriculture, to arrive at modern technologies and innovations. On the estate, the main grape variety offers the largest number of Sangiovese clones ever. Below the farm there is also the ancient stone wine cellar, originally set in the tuff. Today, it has been enlarged and connected to the old stable and houses the maturation process inside. At the end of vinification and ageing, Fèlsina offers incomparable Tuscan red wines, such as Chianti Rancia, Fontalloro, Colonia, Berardenga and Maestro Raro, all aromatic and with fruity scents, with tones of berries. Name and address of producer/distributor: Felsina - Via del Chianti, 101 53019 – Castelnuovo Berardenga SI. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
