92pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
Fill everybody's glasses and offer bites of soppresata, arugula, fig and gorgonzola pizza. For the entrée, cook your favorite pasta to a perfect al dente, and toss it with a Bolognese meat and tomato sauce with freshly grated Parmesan. This Riserva will also pair beautifully with grilled steak and a juicy lamb roast. Ask your butcher if they can get you some Chianina. It's Italy's most-prized beef, and it will be fantastic with this Tuscan red. Cosa sati aspettando winelovers??!

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The Fèlsina 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardenga is a rich and sultry expression of pure Sangiovese with dark fruit intensity and a beautiful contouring of spice, leather and tar. This wine hits the intensity nail on the head without the overt over-ripeness that we saw in many of its peers from this hot and dry vintage. I would not recommend an especially long drinking window, but I can enthusiastically recommend this authentic taste of Chianti Classico for near or medium-term drinking. The Riserva ages in large Slavonian oak casks for 12 months." Drink date: 2020-2026." Aug 2020

Winery: "Ruby red with deep intensity and hue. Fruity, fine and elegant aromas dominated by wild berries, along with array of spicy notes. Fruity on the palate with good tannins and a lingering finish."
