Fontalloro is the wine that best conveys the unique characteristics of a border zone, the swath which runs through Fèlsina and makes it so distinctive. One of the source vineyards is located, in fact, within Chianti Classico, the venerable Fontalloro vineyard, planted in the higher section of Fèlsina.
A rich, brilliant ruby red.
Good spice on the nose, with generous notes of tobacco and wet earth (and of dry earth as well).
The palate is supported by a hefty charge of medium-smooth tannins to ensure the required lengthy ageing. Superb weight and structure, with a classic finish. Significant cellarability in great vintages.

Felsina

From this winery:
Fèlsina. A name reaching back to Etruscan times. A feeling that infuses the air, in harmony with the quality of the light, with the earth’s scent and the fragrance of the breezes, with the march of the seasons and night time silences. Before the e...
