Castelnuovo Berardenga, Province of Siena

Founded in 1966 by Domenico Poggiali, Fèlsina was the Etruscan name for this viticultural terroir nearly 3000 years ago. The estate at the southern border of Castelnuovo Berardenga remains one of Tuscany’s finest terrains.

Today, Beppe Poggiali, Giuseppe Mazzocolin and superstar winemaker Franco Bernabei form an awesome team that has overseen 25 years of extensive research and clonal selection to achieve an incredible combination of complexity, structure, power and finesse. Fèlsina has been awarded Tre Bicchieri every year since the first publication of Gambero Rosso’s Vini d’Italia in 1988, and in 2009 they were named Winery of the Year.


Fèlsina make two of Tuscany’s finest Sangiovese wines in Rancia and Fonalloro. Rancia, the estate’s single vineyard Chianti Classico Riserva, is simply superb; ripe and racy fruit balancing spice, game, and mineral notes with layered, lingering flavours. Fontalloro is 100% Sangiovese from vineyards both in and outside of the Chianti Classico border (hence the IGT classification) and is renowned for its structure, concentration, intensity and depth. Both wines have extraordinary track records of cellaring for decades.
