To all Wine Exchangers,
“My visit to Fèlsina was one of the many highlights of my most recent trip to Chianti Classico. I tasted a wide range of wines with Giuseppe Mazzocolin and Giovanni Poggiali. Even after a long day, it was frankly hard to leave the tasting room. The wines were every bit that compelling. The estate's 2016s and 2015s are simply magnificent.” – Antonio Galloni

This is it.

If you want one of the best bottles of Sangiovese produced in the epic 2016 vintage you got it right here, right now.

One of the greatest Sangiovese wines ever made is yours, for a measly $49.98.

It’s simple. Fattoria Felsina’s Fontalloro is, along with its Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia stable mate, year after year, one of the premiere Sangiovese-based wines produced in the whole of Tuscany.
Consistent. Remarkable. You can set your watch by it. A blue chip. A go-to. Age it 15 years? Sure. Drink it in a year or two with a little decanting? Sure.

Scores? Fontalloro gets like a million points…every year. This year? Just a best-ever ‘98+’ from Wine Advocate for the Felsina Fontalloro 2016.

Straight out of the bottle with no decanting the wine is powerful yet serene, introspective, daring you to drink it. With an hour of air the ethereal Sangiovese aromas of balsamic red cherry, forest fruits (wild strawberry, raspberry), fresh leather and underlying coolness all begin to emerge. With 2-3 hours the wine detonates, finally giving up all of its “Wine of the Vintage” goodness. Incredible.

Wine Advocate’s notes? Monica Larner writes, The 2016 Fontalloro is the best vintage of this landmark wine that I have tasted thus far. This is a very elegant vintage, with more volume in the mouth and precise notes of tar, licorice, camphor ash, resin and Indian spice. In a race between the highly competitive 2015 and 2016 vintages, I give a slight advantage to this wine. The warmer 2015 vintage shows more richness and exuberant fruit. However, this wine from 2016 offers a more focused and chiseled delivery. I am hopeful that this wine will continue to evolve and sharpen as it ages in the bottle. This is a beautiful wine to put aside in your cellar for ten years or more. 98+ points.”

Happy Hunting…
