    (Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga Chianti Classico) This is 100% Sangiovese from vines of at least 50 years of age in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga. Fermented at 28-30ºC with punch-down, followed by small and medium-sized oak barrels for 12 months. This looks tired in the glass already, and the aromatic profile matches my first impression, being full of balsamic notes and caramel sur-maturité. The palate holds no surprises, with plenty of grippy tannins and low acidity, but as the nose suggested it lacks fruit freshness and definition. This is not in a good place right now; looking at my note from a previous tasting in February 2011, I wonder if this sample just isn't a little tired.

    (Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico) A very appealing fresh but deep and slightly dusty hue here. Bright and fresh fruit character on the nose here, delicious red berries mixed with custard powder, all very expressive and defined. The palate is medium bodied at best, certainly lighter than expected, with a rather stony-steely feel to the fruit at first. rather a classic style on the nose and gentle and reserved on the palate. Not a blockbuster but full of typicity and should give plenty of pleasure given a year or two.
