    A delicious and wonderful Chianti. It has bright and juicy red fruit flavors and is medium bodied.It has a lot of fruit for a Chianti and will go well with paste and meat dishes.

    The aromatics in this wine are so pure, full of black cherry, plum and earth, just a classic representation of what Chianti Classico should smell like. On the palate the wine is supple, smooth; while balancing its structure with sumptuous fruit, waves of plum, black cherry, spice and leather just keep coming at you. The finish shows a superbly balanced wine, in a perfect drinking stage, lush, focused and so complex. Hard to find something better at this price point.

    It is awesome to see a few more Chiantis in our store, especially from Felsina. This simple Classico is everything I want in a Chianti: red fruit on the nose with a little cedar and spice. Tart red raspberry and cherry notes are uplifted by the acid that this wine is known for. The tannins stand out on the finish, however they are soft and coating tannins, and that means this is a fantastic food wine. Very tasty bottle that is sure to please any Chianti lover.

    Felsina Chianti Classico is, well, a classic! The spicy, slightly woodsy, tangy fruit of this wine always places it amongst my favorite Tuscan wines. I don't think there is a better introduction to Chianti than Felsina.

    I have a soft spot in my heart for the Felsina wines. They were one of the first Tuscan producers I fell in love with back when I got started in the wine business. I remember the musky red fruit, the velvety tannins and the lead pencil notes as though it were yesterday. I'm pleased to say that the 2013 Chianti Classico holds all of those qualities. The macerated cherries, the mouthfeel, the graphite, a hint of rusticity. That's the beauty of wine. You can relive past moments and in the meantime make new ones. This wine and some salume, maybe a little chicken liver crostini and definitely some wild boar ragu over fresh pappardelle. Sounds like a perfect new memory about to be made.

    From the very user friendly 2013 vintage, this is one of our best values from Tuscany, black cherries, spicy oak, and a touch of earth. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, with fine concentration and a dry finish, with well integrated and soft tannins. Enjoy tonight and over the next couple years.

    If you like Italian wine with the inimitable, original flavors of the Tuscan hills, this fantastic Chianti Classico is for you. I can't wait for my next grilled pork chop and polenta dinner... This wine is going to be perfect with it! The Felsina has the classic nose of Sangiovese- it is hard for me to tell where the cherries end and the leather begins! It also has that perfect medium bodied texture- not to heavy, but not at all weak. I think the best feature of the wine is the finish- long and elegant. Time to fire up the coals and decant one!
