"The 2018 Chianti Classico Berardenga is endowed with so much class. In 2018, the Classico is a bit more restrained than it can be. That mid-weight sense of structure, though, gives the wine quite a bit of early appeal. Even so, I would cellar the 2018 for a few years, as all the elements haven't fully come together just yet. Dark cherry, game, smoke, licorice and earthy notes are a reminder we are in Castelnuovo Berardenga, even if the 2018 has less weight and overt power than Fèlsina fans are used to seeing. Drinking window: 2023-2033. 92 points

This is a gorgeous set of wines from Fèlsina. The range is full of highlights, starting with the 2018 Chianti Colli Senesi, which is especially refined and a fabulous value. Fèlsina fans will find much to like in the 2017s as well. As always, the wines are deep and rich, with that distinct element of wildness that is so characteristic of the Sangioveses of Castelnuovo Berardenga. Even after all these years, Giovanni Poggiali and Giuseppe Mazzocolin, with their team, craft wines of distinction and elegance. Lastly, readers should also check out the wines of sister estate Pagliarese, which are made in a slightly more classic style."
