Felsina Chianti Classico Berardenga DOCG

Case of 6 bottles

Bottle Size: 750 ml

Vintage: 2021

Varietals: Sangiovese 100%

Alcohol %: 13

Region: Toscana

Tasting Notes: Ruby red with deep intensity and hue. Fruity, fine and elegant aromas dominated by wild berries, along with array of spicy notes. Fruity on the palate with good tannins and a lingering finish.

Ageing/Vinification: After the quality-selected clusters are de-stemmed and pressed, the must is fermented and macerated in stainless steel for 12 to 15 days at 28°C and 30°C, with programmed punchdowns and daily pumpovers. In March/April, the new wine goes into medium-size Slavonian oak barrels, and a small percentage into twice and thrice used oak barrels; after 12 months, the final blend is assembled, bottled, and ages in glass a minimum of 3 months.

Vineyard: The vineyards are located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, in the southeastern part of the Chianti Classico appellation, to the southeast of Siena. Almost exclusively with a southwestern exposure, they sprawl across ventilated slopes at an altitude ranging from 320m to 420m above sea level. Geologically, the terrains are mixed: in the higher parts the soil is predominantly rock quartz and calcareous alberese mixed with alluvial pebbles; strataform sandstone and loam characterize the vineyards on the edge of the Colli Senesi in the direction of the Crete Senesi.
