2013 Felsina 'Fontalloro' Toscana 375ml half-bottle

$29.95

Half-bottles! Labeled IGT because it also contains fruit from 50+ year old vines in the Colli Senesi appellation, this is spicy and exotic, with a note of waxy incense. If you’re an Italian collector, or even just getting into Italian wine, this is a strong buy in our book. Need convincing? “Gorgeous and soft, the 2013 Fontalloro is another landmark wine from this classic vintage. There is enormous intensity here and the wine is only at the beginning of its long aging trajectory.” - The Wine Advocate

Fattoria di Fèlsina, in the southern Chianti Classico town of Castelnuovo Berardenga, is producing what we consider to be some of THE greatest values in fine wine in the entire world. If you love Brunello di Montalcino, and the beauty, depth, and perfume of Sangiovese that it offers, you owe it to yourself to explore the wines of Fèlsina. The Poggiali family has been dedicated to traditional winemaking, and to the Sangiovese cultivar, from the very beginning: 1966. Both of the following bottlings are produced exclusively from old Sangiovese vines. The Riserva hails from a 35 year old plot, and Fontalloro contains fruit from 50+ year olds. If you love Italian wines, there are fewer ways to be better to yourself than to order mixed cases of these wines each year for your cellar. It's as simple as that.
