MidWeek Magnum – 2016 Felsina Chianti Classico$14 BTG
Every Wednesday Taste Wine Bar & Kitchen hosts Midweek Magnums.
This week’s magnum: 2016 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva
Fattoria di Felsina is one of the great names of Tuscany. Felsina is a benchmark producer who was one of the pioneers of abandoning the use of white grapes and focusing on Sangiovese, rather than blending in other local varietals. They are located in the Chianti Classico zone on the Southern side of the appellation, which is the area that shows the richest expressions of Sangiovese. The vineyards are farmed organically and the average age of the vines is remarkably old. 2016 was a great vintage, and this wine shows deep red fruit, leather, game, smoke, tobacco – it’s brimming with Sangiovese character!
