This 470-hectare estate is located northeast of Siena in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, on the southern border of the Chianti Classico zone. Fèlsina epitomises the powerful style of southern Chianti, where the wines are stylistically more akin to those from Montalcino than their fellow Chianti from Fontodi or Isole e Olena. Domenico Poggiali bought the estate in 1966. Giuseppe Mazzocolin, son-in-law of Domenico, entered the family business in late 1970s and played a significant role in the growth of the winery. Since 1990 Giovanni Poggiali, Domenico's grandson, has joined the management and continues his grandfather's enterprise with the same passion. Giuseppe Mazzocolin is now less involved in the running of the estate, and consultant oenologist Franco Bernabei is very much at the helm of the winemaking team.
Fèlsina epitomises the powerful style of southern Chianti. A deep, attractive ruby red in colour, this Chianti has a perfumed nose of wild red berries, cherries and nuances of mixed spices. The fruit-forward palate is complemented by supple tannins on a long, spicy finish.
