1995 Felsina Fontalloro Tuscany image

Fontalloro is the most representative expression of Fèlsina’s Sangiovese.

Fontalloro grapes come from vineyards straddling the border between Chianti Classico and the Chianti Colli Senesi denomination. The vineyards lying within the Chianti Classico appellation are in the highest area of Fèlsina while those in the Chianti Colli Senesi are lower down (407-330 meters above sea level). With a southwestern exposure, the grapes are influenced by diverse soil compositions: on the Chianti Classico side the soil is stony and calcareous; on the Crete Senesi side the soil is sandy, loamy and silty with pebbles and marine sediments. First vintage 1983.



 



(90 Points) Fresh and chunky red. Well-structured and balanced. A bounty of dark chocolate and ripe cherries on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a long, clean fruit finish. Drink now through 2004. 2,665 cases made. –JS Wine Spectator Issue: Nov 30, 1999
