Felsina Berardenga Fontalloro Toscana 2016
Ruby red color with rich and intense tones. Variety of aromatic herbs accentuated with generous notes of tobacco and wet earth (dry earth, as well), blackcurrant, and licorice. The palate manifests good consistency of medium-smooth tannins to ensure the lengthy aging. Rich structure and weight and elegant breed on the finish. Optimum cellar life in all vintages.
100% Sangiovese. Bottled at Castelnuovo Berardenga by Fattoria di Felsina. It was 1966 when Domenico Poggiali Felsina took the courageous leap and bought the estate at a time when Italian viticulture was struggling. On the estate, he found a cellar set into the Tufa hills. It was small, built of stone with a wide brick vault. Construction of an underground wine cellar that connected to the old stables, once home to fine horses, was completed in the early 1970s and is still used for aging.
