About

93

A deep, powerful wine, the 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva has quite a bit of depth for a cool, late-ripening vintage. Sage, tobacco, menthol, smoke and dark cherry hit the palate in a deep, beautifully layered Chianti Classico endowed with real personality and class. This is another terrific wine from Fèlsina. Hints of leather, smoke and licorice reappear on the deeply expressive, virile finish.

92 Wine & Spirits

Fèlsina owns some 220 vineyard acres near Castelnuovo Berardenga at Chianti Classico’s southern edge. This wine is selected from parcels of sangiovese at varying elevations, giving a balanced wine with loads of texture, spice and ripeness. It opens on a cool menthol note, with black cherry flavors immersed in a mélange of crunchy herbs and vibrant spices. Notes of orange peel, dried cherry and roasted mushroom emerge after a few hours, on the way to a long and lively finish. It’s a generous Riserva, built for something robust like braised beef.

92 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

A Chianti Classico with a pretty backbone of tannin and acidity along with subtle chocolate and cherry character. Medium body. Solid as always. Better in a year or two but beautiful now to drink.

Product Description:
