Soil

The lands belonging to the Fèlsina winery comprise up to 600 ha of vineyards, olive groves, woods and other cereal crops, vegetables and sunflowers. At one time a farm owned by the Grand Dukes of Tuscany, it was a place especially dedicated to growing olives with hardly any hectares given over to vines, but in the last 50 years Fèlsina has turned it into one of the most important wineries in the production of Sangiovese variety wines. The vineyards which give rise to the Fèlsina Chianti Classico, the company's entry wine, are located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, a municipality located in the south-eastern area of the denomination. The altitude of the land ranges between 320 and 420 metres and the soil composition varies too: in the highest part there is a predominance of quartz, limestone and alluvial deposits, while the area closer to Siena has a prevalence of sandstone and mud. Made solely from the Sangiovese variety, the Fèlsina Chianti Classico ages for 12 months in medium-capacity Slavonian oak barrels, and a small batch in second and third-fill barrels. The result is a wine of amazing richness and intensity which imparts sensual aromas of ripe fruit, spices and an irresistible minerality. Cherries, flowers and stones are at the heart of this wine, but besides these there are also other aromas of liquorice and tobacco which contribute elegance and charm to the ensemble. It proves delightfully consistent on the palate, with a velvety texture that makes every single drop an absolute pleasure.
