    A very pretty and "high toned" example of Chianti Classico, which to me, means it has plenty of brightness and aromas that keep the nose incredibly interesting. Bright berries, red cherry, great supporting acid and ripe tannin make this bottle a perfect partner for turkey burgers, grilled chicken, and vegetarian stuffed peppers. With some patience and bottle age, this will very much evolve into something more savory to pair with a juicy steak.

    This is drinking GREAT right now!!! and will over the next couple of years (but only if you can keep your hands off it and keep some in the cellar). Here is a wine that packs a wallop and lots of bang for your buck all in one! Give this Chianti about an hour to open up and stand back, on the palate you will find strawberries and black cherries, a little bitter coco and some toasty oak, fine tannins and a hint of Tuscan dust on the long finish.

    The first sniff of this wine transported me right back to the time I was lost in the hills of Chianti while driving a rental car without GPS. Once I found my vacation apartment I rewarded myself with a slab of meat and a bottle of Chianti Classico at one of the small, local restaurants. Tart cherry fruit, leather, herbaceous notes, focused tannins and a clean finish make this wine an absolute must with food. Like a Fiat without its GPS, it's a bit lonely on it's own but with some lamb or steak it's going places.

    It's never difficult for us to go long on Felsina in any vintage but their 2015 deserves attention. The vintage is already turning heads in Tuscany and the Felsina Chianti Classico is definitely one of the stars. It captures the signature Berardegna berry fruit with subtle highlights of dried florals, cedar and minerals. This medium-bodied gem manages to deliver elegant fruit with perfectly balanced tannins and acidity. A very fine Chianti Classico we highly recommend.

    If you're looking for quality that outperforms a price-point, just look for Felsina on the label (especially for a vintage like 2015). Another homerun in the Tuscan value category, this Chianti Classico shows a classic Chianti character while borrowing from the robust nature of the vintage, adding a beautiful brightness and refinement. It is first a food wine with focus, acidity and tannin. It does have enough fruit, however, that it can stand on its own if need be. It'll be hard to keep your hands off now since it can drink effortlessly with a quick decant, but it'll be fun to follow for the next 5-10 years for those with a bit more patience. Either way, another superb vintage for Felsina's flagship Chianti Classico.

    The nose is full of wild cherries, leather, earth and you can sense the richness, and on the palate the wine’s weight and concentration make a bold statement but never drift out of balance. The flavors are saturated, complex and filled me with awe, a dazzling array of spice, concentrated wild cherry, leather, porcini that seem so well integrated even at this wine’s young age. There is power here, a real depth of structure but never does the wine get out of balance, there is a harmony and for fans of Felsina this is a classic. This is a wine you can easily drink now but it will age well for 10-15 years from the vintage, a real winner and at this price a ridiculously good bargain.
    Drink from 2018 to 2030
