2017 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva

SKU #1485652 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Fresh and vivid for a 2017, due to the hot weather. It’s full-bodied, tight and structured with wet earth, tobacco and fresh herbs. Dark fruit, too. Lot of flavorful. Serious red. Drink now. Inner quote mark (7/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva is a total knock-out. Sumptuous and enveloping, but with plenty of structure to support it all, the 2017 captures all the best elements of the house style. Succulent black cherry, worn-in leather, smoke, licorice and espresso all build in the glass as the 2017 shows off its curves. More than anything else, the 2017 is a wine of tremendous pleasure. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Fèlsina 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardenga (with 70,000 bottles made) is a rich and sultry expression of pure Sangiovese with dark fruit intensity and a beautiful contouring of spice, leather and tar. This wine hits the intensity nail on the head without the overt over-ripeness that we saw in many of its peers from this hot and dry vintage. I would not recommend an especially long drinking window, but I can enthusiastically recommend this authentic taste of Chianti Classico for near or medium-term drinking. The Riserva ages in large Slavonian oak casks for 12 months. (ML) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

This has always been a big wine for me. Powerful and focused, with tannin and richness, it’s layered, bold, and dark, and the flavors are shy, hidden by the richness of this wine. On the palate the wine has incredible length, with a concentrated and focused center. The fruit is saturated, incredibly flavored—a combination of wild cherry and wild strawberry accented with Tuscan brush. I think the best idea is to age this wine—get a few bottles to taste now, but also stock up for the long haul. It’s going to last a long time.

Love me some Felsina !This wine is classic Sangiovese, sweet, expansive, floral, black cherry, and kirsch liqueur-like aromas. As it sits in the glass, hints of leather and Tuscan dust emerge from this medium to full-bodied, flavorful Chianti.
