Felsina Berardenga Rancia Chianti Classico Riserva 2015
Brilliant, rich ruby red. Spicy nose with floral notes and wild berry nuances. Spice continues in the mouth, nicely complemented by a dense, soft fabric of youthful tannins; excellent structure and superb overall character.
100% Sangiovese. 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.
