Malvasia and Trebbiano with some Sangiovese
The estate vineyards straddle the Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi region, and are quite close to the town of Siena. There are 61 hectares of vines in all, but the property is much bigger, totalling 475 hectares, and including olive trees, wheat fields and forests. The name Felsina dates back to the Etruscan people, and back to 2000 BC. Many words in Italy beginning with ‘Fel’ or ‘Bol’ have Etruscan roots. The modern era of Fèlsina began in 1966 when current owner Giuseppe Mazzocolin’s father-in-law acquired the property. They began with 9 hectares of vines, but grew this by massale selection to its current size, and acquired a second property: Castello di Farnetella, in the Colli Senesi.
What The Critics Say
94/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
"Dried figs, mint, licorice, crème brulée, herbs and candied orange peel soar from the glass in Fèlsina 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico. Aromatically expressive and a bit richer than is often the case, the 2006 offers gorgeous depth, with plenty of acidity to back things up." Drink 2015 - 2026
