Chianti Classico Berardenga Felsina 2018 (750ML)
91 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “The Fèlsina 2018 Chianti Classico Berardenga is a toned and delicate expression of 100% Sangiovese from a vintage that produced beautifully subtle and understated wines. It shows good momentum driven by dark fruit, blackberry and summer cherry. The intensity of these aromas is downplayed and rendered less pronounced, adding elegance and fragility. Pretty background notes of spice and balsam herb add an extra layer of complexity. An ample 280,000 bottles were produced.” 08/20
92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: “The 2018 Chianti Classico Berardenga is endowed with so much class. In 2018, the Classico is a bit more restrained than it can be. That mid-weight sense of structure, though, gives the wine quite a bit of early appeal. Even so, I would cellar the 2018 for a few years, as all the elements haven't fully come together just yet. Dark cherry, game, smoke, licorice and earthy notes are a reminder we are in Castelnuovo Berardenga, even if the 2018 has less weight and overt power than Fèlsina fans are used to seeing.” 09/20
93 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: “Perfumed and fresh with cherries, cedar and hints of dried flowers. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and a long, direct finish. Really lively and fresh. Very typical for a top Chianti Classico. Drink now.” 10/20
92 Points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: "New leather, camphor and blue flower are some of the aromas you'll find on this bright, fragrant red. On the medium-bodied palate, vibrant acidity and taut tannins surround cassis, Marasca cherry and tobacco notes." 11/20
94+ points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: “100% Sangiovese from vineyard located in the highly-skilled area of Castelnuovo Berardenga. 12 months in Slavonian oak barrels, a wine that shows on the nose hints of small red fruits, currant and pomegranate, floral ending with nuances of lavender. The mouth is crispy and savoury. Long sip with long-lasting persistence.”
