Fèlsina is one of the great estates in Tuscany, and one of the most famous properties in all of Italy. The winery was founded in 1966, though didn’t start bottling under the Fèlsina label until the early `80s. The estate is owned and run by Giuseppi Mazzocolin.
As compared to some other top estates in the region, Fèlsina relies exclusively upon Sangiovese for its Chianti Classicos as well as its IGT “Fontalloro.” Each Fèlsina wine, from the overachieving Chianti Classico normale, through the earthy, iconic “Riserva Rancia,” and the powerful “Fontalloro,” exhibits a deft combination of power and elegance. While some new oak is used on the wines, it is used in a measured way as to not dominate the texture and aromas of the wines.
