Wine Spectator's recognition of Fèlsina's 2013 Chianti Classico Berardenga, tapping it for their #40 spot in their Top 100 list for 2013 sure made that wine a big hit. 2017 has come, another winner, and alas the 2018 has landed and it too is another success by the talented Giovanni Poggiali. His influence (and that of Mother Nature's, too) really shines through again in 2018. The Chianti Classico Berardenga is another royal masterpiece. Coming from the estate's vineyards in the southeastern sector of the Classico zone, Fèlsina's Berardenga parcels are uniquely exposed, almost exclusively southwestern, and higher than many of their neighbors – topping out at 1,375 feet above sea level. These conditions made for an incredible 2018, one I cannot recommend highly enough. Such purity.


Hold your horses, this is one spectacular Vin Santo that explodes with intensity and authenticity. The Fèlsina 2008 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a true work of art, and I recommend that you sit back to savor every single special sip of this traditional sweet wine from Tuscany. The bouquet offers thick layers of candied fruit, apricot, honey, brown sugar and maple syrup. It is sweet, but in a delicate way. It provides enough tangy fruit, freshness, spice and toasted nut to magically appear less sweet than it actually is. Smoke, camphor ash and dried mint appear on the extra long finish.

A gorgeous, caramel and toffee-laden white with hints of salt and honey. It’s full, very sweet and flavorful. Goes on for minutes. Drink now.
