Felsina Berardenga Colonia Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2017


“The 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia is fabulous. Bright and translucent in the glass, the Colonia embodies everything that makes the Fèlsina wines so special. It is at once both powerful and elegant, extroverted and quiet and yet so full of character. The Colonia delivers a whole range of Sangiovese aromas and flavors with tremendous intensity and grace. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, cedar, tobacco and earthy notes all grace this exquisite, wonderfully expressive edition of Fèlsina’s Gran Selezione. Drinking window: 2025-2042. 96 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.”
