Tuscan ORGANIC perfect farm

The Wall Street Journal: best 5 wines

Fèlsina organic farm: experience the magic that Tuscan nature offers, paired with Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 wines.

According to The Wall Street Journal readers, our Chianti Classico is one of the top 5 Best Everyday Wines to stock at home: “far from ordinary”.

Come visit this perfect farm in Tuscany and experience the magic that nature offers: the vineyards, olive trees, the woods.

Discover the fascination of the old cellar and its striking barrel room, enter the places where our wines age and are prepared for bottling.

The “no frills” Tuscan farm: vineyards, olive groves, woods, row garden, goats, hens, quail, ducks, guinea fowl.

Fèlsina concluded, on 7 March 2015, its conversion period to organic agriculture, as certified by ICEA, (Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification).

ORGANIC does not just concern agricultural production, it is also a philosophical approach.

Fattoria di Felsina Chianti Classico BERARDENGA

  • Wine Spectator TOP 100 2016 n.40, 92 pts. (2013)*

  • Wine Spectator TOP100 2008 n.51, 90pts. (2006)*
    Lavender and blackberry aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body, with a solid core of fruit and a tangy aftertaste of citrus fruit and dried cherry. Best after 2009. 15,000 cases made. —JS

Fattoria di Felsina Chianti Classico BERARDENGA

  • Wine Spectator TOP 100 2001 n.85, 90 pts. (1999)*
    Lots of dried cherry and crushed black fruit, with polished leather and mineral notes. Medium-bodied, with good acidity on the palate, well-integrated tannins and a well-balanced and fresh finish. Give it a little time in bottle. Best from 2002 through 2005. 14,165 cases made. —JS
  • Wine Spectator TOP 100 199 n.69, 91 pts. (1997)*

Fattoria di Felsina Toscana FONTALLORO IGT (Supertuscan)

  • Wine Spectator TOP 100 2009 n.13, 95 pts. (2006)*
    Chocolate, blackberry and black cherry aromas lead to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a deep concentration of fruit. Powerfully rich and polished. Big and structured. A blockbuster Sangiovese. Best after 2012. 3,300 cases made. —JS
  • Wine Enthusiast 92 pts. Vintage 2017*
    Aromas of leather, camphor, underbrush and violet form the nose. The linear, medium-bodied palate shows tart cherry, orange zest and tobacco alongside grainy tannins that leave a rather drying finish. Kerin O’Keefe.
  • Falstaff 95 pts. Vintage 2018*
    Sparkling ruby with a fine garnet tongue. Appealing, complex nose with notes of tobacco, plums and raspberries. Flows balanced and harmonious on the palate, lots of fine-meshed tannins, clearly worked out fruit, shows full pressure again in the finale, long finish.
