    January 5, 2020 - For current drinking, hard to imagine a better CCR from Felsina right now. Great persistence and good acidity, expansive on the palate, red and black fruits - for what was a $20 bottle now almost 15 years from the vintage, silly good QPR. Unfortunately, one of my last bottles - the way this is drinking right now, I would love to have another case in the cellar.

    One of this rare vintages where for me the CCR is the equal to the Rancia.

    May 7, 2019 - Sweet/ripe red fruits on the nose, and that sense carries through nicely on the palate. Ready to drink and delicious.

    February 3, 2018 - Grilling up some sweet Italian sausage and polenta to serve with escarole and white beans for dinner, so I grabbed a couple Felsina to pair with dinner.

    This is translucent ruby in the glass, with ripe red and black fruit and an earthy note on the nose.

    Light- to medium-bodied, good framing acidity, nice persistence. I like the way this is drinking right now, and should probably make a note to check out a Rancia from this vintage one of these days.

    June 2, 2017 - From a bottle opened last night.

    Similar in color to the Castellare; great nose here, with smoked meats, an earthy note, red & black fruits.

    Nicely integrated on the palate, but today this doesn't have the energy/lift of the Castellare. This is a more complex wine, but it fails to follow through on the palate after enticing you with that great nose. I liked the wine better last night than I do today.

    January 3, 2016 - Once again, a very nice wine with food. Had this with some pasta and a red meat sauce. A more refined Chianti, but ends with a short to medium finish.
