Deep ruby in colour, with a youthful rim.
On the nose, the 2008 Chianti Classico is characterised by perfumes of wild red berries, concentrated plums and mixed spice and a herbal note that carries through to the ripe, exuberant palate, full-bodied and chunky with rounded tannins and a long, spiced plum finish.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 8 years
This 470 hectare estate is located northeast of Siena, in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, on the southern border of the Chianti Classico production area. Fèlsina epitomises the powerful style of southern Chianti, where the wines are stylistically more akin to those from Montalcino than their fellow Chianti from Fontodi or Isole e Olena. Giuseppe Mazzocolin runs the estate and consultant enologist Franco Bernabei has worked here, as well as at Selvapiana and Fontodi, since 1983.
The Felsina vineyards are on average more than 50 years old, located at an altitude of 350-420m above sea level, with a good southwest exposure. There are 5,400 vines planted per hectare. Soils are Quartzitic blue-grey sandstone mixed with sand strata, calcareous alberese mixed with alluvial pebbles. Vines are trained according to a simple guyot system, with a maximum of 5-8 buds per vine. Harvest takes place at various times depending on the altitudes of the vineyards and their different ripening times, but usually within the first three weeks of October.
