Ruby red color with rich and intense tones. Variety of aromatic herbs accentuated with generous notes of tobacco and wet earth (dry earth, as well), black currant and licorice. The palate manifests good consistency of medium-smooth tannins to ensure the lengthy ageing. Rich structure and weight and elegant breed on the finish.

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.

James Suckling

A tight, fresh Fontalloro with dark cherry, chocolate and toasted oak. Some walnut, too. It’s full-bodied, yet polished and structured. Sort of shy. But this will develop really nicely with some bottle age. Drink after 2023.
