This is an orthodox expression of Chianti Classico that would be a good choice for a blinding tasting. It has a refined aroma of licorice and earth. The palate has high acidity, medium tannins and medium length. Perhaps lacking some stuffing, but elegant and pleasant. Ready to drink now and over the next 5 years. Rating: Good. Abv: NA. Price: $35. Website: https://www.felsina.it/en/. Reviewed: May 2020.
