Felsina Berardenga Fontalloro 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Fontalloro is terrific. In this vintage, the blend of three vineyards is a plus in giving a wine endowed with density, resonance and plenty of Sangiovese character. Dried herbs, leather, incense, tobacco and cedar open with time in the glass. Drinking window: 2024-2036. 94 points

This is an interesting set of wines from Fèlsina. The two 2020s make me really excited to taste the rest of the range. “Most of the year was marked by consistently warm weather, but with no shock events,” Giuseppe Mazzocolin explained. “We were fortunate to have good ventilation throughout the most critical periods.”

The 2019s are more mixed. Less even ripening and higher yields are evident in wines that are lighter than usual and also at times a bit rustic. That is most evident in Rancia. I can’t remember a young Rancia that was underwhelming, and I have tasted them all. The 2019 is certainly a mystery at this stage.”
