Felsina Berardenga Chianti Colli Senesi 2018

It has a brilliant medium intensity ruby hue and switched-on aromatics of cherry, raspberry, dried herbs and hint of earthy Sangiovese character. On the palate it is medium in body but still delivers delicious focused red berry fruit, moderate tannins, lovely supporting acidity and freshness, and lively note with plenty of fruit to fill the palate. Again, to me this is THE perfect summer red! Ready to drink now and over the next 2-3 years at least, serve it all on its own or with an incredible array of summer fare. -Chris Cree, MW

Fattoria di Fèlsina has long been one of the great names in Tuscany. Based in the Chianti Classico region, Fèlsina produces one of the finest ranges of ageworthy and complex Chianti bottlings in all of Italy. Unlike many of their neighbors, Fèlsina has never succumbed to the temptation to produce “new age” wines from their fine Chianti vineyards, and continues to grow solely Sangiovese here, rather than dabble with international-styled blends that include Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. Consequently, their elegant yet intensely flavored Chiantis place them firmly among the top handful of Chianti producers, with the best vintages of their top Riserva Chiantis often approaching Brunello di Montalcino in terms of complexity and potential for longevity. -Polaner

Fèlsina’s Chianti Colli Senesi is wonderfully refined and gracious in 2018. The moderate growing season yielded a Chianti with striking translucence and real class. Sweet red fruit, blood orange, mint, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco add lovely aromatic nuance throughout. The 2018 is elegant and so expressive.
