Best Red…Ever?!?

Posted on: January 7th, 2008 by

Felsina is my favorite Chianti producer and their top wine, the Fontalloro, has been one of my favorites. It’s 100% Sangiovese. The 1999 is one of the best reds I have had, period. So I almost passed out when I was at a local wine shop and saw the 1994 vintage. It was amazing. It has lovely, mature, secondary characteristics; lots of licorice and leather. The concentration of fruit was incredible on the mid-palate and the finish was so fresh. This is a wine that rewards your patience! Beyond highly recommended.
