"I Sistri" Chardonnay Toscana IGT 2019 - Felsina

The history of Fèlsina Chardonnay began in the 1980s, among the first in Tuscany. Initially it involved grafting French clones into the vineyards owned by the nearby Farnetella Estate in Sinalunga. Today it can count on new plantings in the area that rises from the Ombrone river towards Podere del Poggiolo, where the soil is looser than that of Chianti Classico. Harvested by hand in small crates, I Sistri is made from grapes picked in vineyards dating back to the early 2000s. After harvesting, the grapes are softly pressed to obtain the first-pressing must, which after 24 hours is transferred to 225-litre French oak barriques where fermentation takes place, with daily batonage. Here the wine matures in contact with the fine lees. Straw yellow in colour, on the nose there are clear notes of exotic fruit and peach, with pleasant hints of spices well integrated with the vanilla brought by the wood. In the mouth it is full and slightly creamy, as is typical for Chardonnay, with an elegant structure. The balance is excellent, guaranteed by a nice acidity and a fresh sapidity.

The history of Fèlsina began in 1966, when Domenico Poggiali bought the farm and chose to invest in the quality of the wine. In the space of a few years, the number of hectares under vine grew to more than forty and the soul and organisation of the company changed. Located between the last offshoots of the Chianti mountains and the initial part of the Ombrone valley, today Fèlsina covers an area of about 600 hectares, 95 of which are vineyards. It produces vines capable of expressing the different particularities of the terroir of this corner of Tuscany. After all, the Fèlsina estates, developed over more than a thousand years, still constitute the basic cultivation unit of the work. And the main concern is the defence of the natural fertility of the soil, which is safeguarded by working in a context of experimentation that ranges from biodynamics to the most modern technologies and innovations made available worldwide. Thanks to this mentality, today at Fèlsina there are various clones of Sangiovese and rootstocks planted in very heterogeneous territories. This allows the winery's technicians to have, like painters, a palette of infinite shades and possibilities. In addition, there are woods, cereal fields, olive groves, scrub, ditches and streams, and the smaller fields of the hunting reserve cultivated with alfalfa, sainfoin, sorghum, sunflowers and field beans. Everything contributes to the preservation of biodiversity.
