Felsina Berardenga – 2001 back to 1993

See details of our Italian Wine Festival for other Italian tasting notes.

This highly regarded estate is so far south in the Chianti Classico zone, near Castelnuovo Berardenga, that its wines have some of the power of a Brunello di Montalcino. The Vigneto Rancia is a six-hectare, south-facing vineyard of Sangiovese at 400m altitude and this bottling is one of the more forceful statements of Chianti Classico.

Fontalloro is also all-Sangiovese matured in barrique but spends longer in wood, up to 20 months, and is selected from four different vineyards around Siena in the Colli Senesi zone.
