WA 92 IWC 90 AG 90 JS 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Chianti Classico is absolutely impressive and is one of the best base Chianti Classicos I have tasted from 2011. You feel the ripeness and heat of the vintage, but this wine also delivers surprising finesse and complexity. Black cherry and baking spice mingle on the bouquet. Soft tannins wrap around the palate. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
According to International Wine Cellar - (100% sangiovese): "Bright medium red. Precise, high-pitched aromas and flavors of red cherry, raspberry and blood orange, lifted by a strong note of violet. Dense, sappy and youthfully imploded, showing terrific verve and grip on the very long finish. A knockout entry-level Chianti Classico."
According to Antonio Galloni - "Readers on a budget will delight in Felsina's 2011 Chianti Classico. Supple, resonant and beautifully expressive, the 2011 is a clear overachiever. The style is a little juicier than in most vintages, but that is not such a bad thing for a wine meant to be enjoyed over the near and medium-term. Ripe red berries, cinnamon and freshly cut flowers are layered into the textured finish. What a fabulous wine!"
According to James Suckling - "Aromas of blackberries and flowers follow through to a full body with juicy fruit and a clean finish. There's a minerally undertone too. Always an outstanding Chianti Classico. Drink now." 14% ABV.
