Description

Fèlsina releases a fine Chianti Classico wine with a great aromatic richness

The estate

In 1966, Domenico Poggiali acquired Fattoria Fèlsina, at a time when Tuscany was undergoing a real wine revolution with the Super Tuscans. Located in the south-east of the historic area of Chianti Classico and Crete Senesi in the province of Siena, the Fèlsina Estate covers almost 600 hectares, 95 of which are planted with vines. It brings together all the great terroirs that make up the charm and reputation of Tuscany in Italy. The philosophy of Fattoria Fèlsina is based on simple values: to reveal the expression of the Tuscan terroir and grape varieties in Italian wines that reflect history and tradition.

The vineyard

Produced since 1983, Rancia Riserva de Felsina is a Chianti Classico wine made from vineyards facing south-west at an altitude of between 400 and 420 metres, on limestone and marl soils. The name of this wine refers to the terroir of "Rancia," a former Benedictine monastery located in Castelnuovo Berardenga.

Winemaking and ageing

After being harvested by hand, which took place during the first three weeks of October, the grapes were taken to the cellar to begin the vinification process. The grapes were destemmed and pressed, then fermented and macerated in stainless steel tanks for 16 to 20 days at a temperature of 28 to 30 degrees. Daily punching of the cap and pumping over were carried out. Aged in French oak barrels for 18-20 months before final blending and then further aged in bottles for 6-8 months.

Blend

Sangiovese (100%).
