Popped and poured; enjoyed over several hours. Clearly showing the solar nature of the vintage, the 2015 Fèlsina CCR pours a deep garnet color with a near opaque core. Medium viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is vinous with notes of stewed cherries and strawberries, well-oiled leather ball glove, red flowers, curaçao, dried green herbs, and sandalwood. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannins and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes of the nose. The finish is long, tart and satisfying with ferrous minerals. A lovely pairing with Conchiglie Ripiene. While this is fully mature, it still has a healthy life ahead. Drinking very well now and should through 2030 with ease. — 3 days ago
Wow. This product is great. Recommended by crush wines and it was a winner. A little tart. Went with a variety of foods - and not all Italian themed. A great glass to enjoy on its own. So happy I bought three bottles. Buy. You will not be disappointed — 22 days ago

Drinking beautifully… dark cherry, light spice, fruit forward with tannins dissipating after 15 minutes in the decanter. This remains a marvelous Chianti in the traditional style as Laura Bianchi continues the legacy of this great family of vintners. — 15 days ago
First time trying this popular Chianti Classico of which some 180,000 bottles are produced each year, and which retails for around £20-25. I must say, this is a very decent, polished, harmonious wine, although I found it lacking in either regional or varietal typicity and was surprised to find that it’s composed of 100% Sangiovese without any Cabernet in the blend. To me, it smelled and tasted closer to left bank Bordeaux than it did to any region of Tuscany - I don’t know if the winery’s use of French barrels contributes to this.
As I say, not a bad wine, but I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone seeking an expression of the region, or grape. — a month ago
