Felsina Vin Santo 2005 375ML        
Sku: 58443

Fattoria di Felsina is situated in the hills northeast of Siena in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, on the southern tip of the Chianti Classico DOCG production region. The estate maintains the majority of the 75 hectares inside the Classico borders with a small part resting in the Crete Senesi. How this estate came to be is a Tuscan love story: in 1976, Giuseppe Mazzocolin married Gloria Poggialli in the chapel on the Felsina estate. From that day on, the role of the dedicated Latin and Greek school teacher quickly changed from educator to agricultural artisan. Though the Poggialli family had purchased Felsina in 1964, it wasn’t until the early '80s that Mazzocolin took the helm of the estate and changed its course to focus on more Sangiovese. With the arrival of talented wine consultant Franco Bernabei began a period of experimentation; Franco and Giuseppe tried and tested new methods and vines and determined that the southern estate was a natural breeding ground for a unique, richer Sangiovese capable of producing more full-bodied wines that could retain the traditional elegance of the grape. Thus in 1983 Fontalloro and Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia were born!

Tasting notes
Golden yellow, with coppery highlights. Peach, apricot, pineapple and tropical fruit aromas. Consistency on the palate, softness and elegance nicely structured by the oak barrels. Wine with great balance, favorable acidity and a well-harmonized residual sugar. Long in the mouth.

Rating
“The 2004 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is fabulous. A reference point wine for the region, the 2004 captures the heart and intellect with its superb balance and pure pedigree. The style is moderately sweet and oxidative, in the best of the Vin Santo tradition. Savory herbs, dried flowers, leather and lightly burned sugar add complexity on the finish.” Vinous, 97 Points
