Felsina was founded in 1966 by Domenico Poggiali, who developed the properties, wines and business side in the following years along with his son Giuseppe Poggiali. Later, his son in law also called Giuseppe and finally Giuseppe's first son, Giovanni, representing the third generation joined the company. The property extends at least 500 hectares with 90 hectares under vine. The many different vineyards feature very specific microclimates, each one unlike any other. Altitudes vary from 350 to 420 meters (1148 to 1378 feet) above sea level, with soils that range from clay to alberese, rich in minerals and fossils. Because of this extraordinary variety, the Sangiovese di Felsina, or Sangioveto, was born. The combinations of soils and clones together have become a precious asset for the winery to pass on to future generations.
TASTING NOTES: Rich ruby red with spicy and floral aromas with hints of red and black wild berries and toasty notes. The spice re appears on the palate, which displays firm but supple tannins, and a bright finish. Compelling, flavorful and fresh.
