Sangiovese from Chianti, Tuscany, Italy

B-21 Top Recommendation

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. 2016 has come, another winner, and alas the 2017 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 2017. 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 2017, one I cannot recommend highly enough. Such purity.

A very fresh 2017 with plenty of tight and linear tannins that give the wine energy and drive. Medium to full body. Racy finish. This is impressive. Fantastic texture and complexity on the palate with purple fruit and wet earth. Drink or hold.

95 points, James Suckling (Nov 2019)

Aromas of plum, exotic spice, eucalyptus and a hint of violet form the nose. The medium-bodied palate is elegantly structured and has nice tension, offering mature black cherry, blackberry compote and licorice accompanied by polished tannins. Drink through 2023.
