We at Caros are known for our Italian obsessions. But in a portfolio packed with great names that end in vowels, one of them inspires us like no other: Felsina.

This estate is one of the finest collection of vineyards in Chianti, on the southwest border near Montalcino. But it is also a Tuscan paradise of agriculture that is organic and biodynamic largely because it is so ancient. Once the farm of the Grand Dukes of Tuscany, the property had more olive trees than vines when eventually acquired by the Poggiale family, half a century ago, who made it one of Chianti’s leading modern lights.

Caros are pleased to be able to announce a special tasting of Felsina’s most important wines, from gorgeous estate classics up to legendary labels -- including three vintages of their premium Super-Tuscan red, Fontalloro. The night will be hosted by John Caro and presented by Ave Vallecchi, who is kind enough to be visiting us from Felsina. To complete the occasion, delicious home-style cuisine will be provided by John and Richard’s parents, Maurice and Mary Jane Caro.

Selected mostly from two absolutely beautiful vintages, the wines to be tasted are: Farnetella Colli Senesi 2015, Felsina Chianti Classico 2015, Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva 2015, Felsina Riserva Rancia 2015, Felsina Riserva Rancia 2013, Felsina Fontalloro 2015 , Felsina Fontalloro 2013, Felsina Fontalloro 2012, and Felsina Vin Santo 2006.
