About the Winery:
Fèlsina is an Italian wine estate founded in 1966, and situated at the southeast edge of the Chianti Classico appellation in Tuscany. The estate produces a wide range of wines, including multiple Chianti Classicos (including Riservas and Gran Selezione), IGT Toscanas, Vin Santos and sparkling wines.

Notes from the Winemaker:
The ancient tradition of “Vin Santo di Fèlsina” is embodied in the passage of the “mother” (the thick substance remaining from previous vintages) from the previous year’s casks to the next. The process has been modernized through careful grape selection, attention to the drying process, by adding the Sangiovese varietal to characterize Fèlsina’s signature style, as well as by meticulous care in vinification and ageing.

Tasting Notes:
Golden yellow, with coppery highlights. Peach, apricot, pineapple and tropical dried fruit aromas. Consistency on the palate, softness and elegance nicely structured by the oak barrels. Wine with great balance, favorable acidity and a well-harmonized residual sugar. Long in the mouth.

Varietal Composition: Trebbiano, Malvasia and Sangiovese.

They are then de-stemmed and pressed, and the must is transferred to sealed, 100 litre oak casks containing the “mother”, a thick substance remaining from previous vintages. After 7 years in the “vinsantaia” loft area, the wine is bottle aged for a minimum of 6 months.
