Chianti Classico DOCG 2020 - Pagliarese

It is called Pagliarese and it is a quality Chianti Classico DOCG. It is offered by the fine Sienese company Fèlsina, based in Castelnuovo Berardenga. We are in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, the most historic and vocated area. Here the wine tradition is ancient and Sangiovese is almost the only protagonist. It certainly is in the blend of this wine, which is composed of 90% Sangiovese. With it small parts of Canaiolo and Mammolo, which contribute to the complexity of the finished wine. Long controlled fermentation and maturation of the wine in medium/large Slavonian oak casks for a period of between 10 and 12 months. This is followed by bottling and the final passage to the cellar for a further 6 months, necessary to achieve the right degree of refinement. The result is a wine characterised by a beautiful ruby-red colour, with intense aromas of red and dark fruit, a delicate hint of undergrowth and an intense hint of sweet spices and tobacco. On the palate, however, it is pleasantly elegant, well supported by the right tannicity and a soft, lingering aftertaste. On the table it goes well with savoury dishes. Excellent - ça va sans dire - with the classic Fiorentina steak accompanied, as tradition would have it, by a side of beans and a splash of good oil.

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 hectares under vine became more than forty and the soul and organisation of the farm also changed. Positioned 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. This gives rise to 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 unit of cultivation today. And the main concern is the defence of the natural fertility of the soil, which is safeguarded by working in a context of experimentation ranging from biodynamics to the most modern technologies and innovations made available worldwide. Thanks to this mentality, today at Fèlsina there are several Sangiovese clones and rootstocks planted in very heterogeneous territories. This allows the winery technicians to have, like painters, a palette of infinite nuances and possibilities. Plus woods, fields sown with cereals, olive groves, scrub, ditches and streams, the smaller fields of the hunting reserve cultivated with alfalfa, lupinello, sorghum, sunflower and field beans. Everything contributes to the preservation of biodiversity.
