      “Colonia” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Felsina's Chianti Classico Gran Selezione from Vigneto Colonia is a project of the Poggiali family that has been going on for three generations. The vineyard has reddish-brown soils, rich in magnesium and iron on boulders of limestone and calcareous marl, quite different from all the other sites of Fèlsina. The wine is impressively dark ruby, expressively mineral and pure, with aromas of dark cherry and blackcurrant. Pure elegance, refinement and harmony in just 3,000 numbered bottles for true lovers of Sangiovese! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bewitching scent of red berries, liquorice and herbs; pithy on the palate, the tannins bulky, in balance with the fresh acidity, fine-tangy final with notes of red forest fruits, leather and bitter almonds. Very successful." Vinum

      "Intense, sparkling ruby with a garnet shimmer. Opened with surprisingly ripe notes, after liquorice, then lots of plum, some raspberry. On the palate then very fresh, like cherry, opens with present, pithy tannin in many layers, salty and deep." Falstaff

      "The Colonia parcel sits at the top of Fèlsina's Poggio a Rancia vineyard on an extremely rocky outcrop. South facing and reaching upwards of 400 metres above sea level, it is enclosed by forest. Aged exclusively in new fine-grain, medium toast French oak barriques, this has the power and depth to effortlessly absorb the wood. It exudes the untamed generosity of Tuscany's countryside with baked earth, dried thyme plum, and succulent dark cherry punctuated by savoury spice and incense. While immediately seductive in its charms, structurally this could use some more time in the bottle as those vigorous chalky tannins build artfully across the palate." Decanter

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia possesses off the charts richness and intensity in a bold, racy style that captures all the best this site has to offer. Striking inner perfume, bright red Sangiovese fruit and soft contours add to the wine's compelling balance. Much more open today than Rancia, Colonia is positively stunning in 2016. In fact, it is the finest Colonia yet." Vinous

      "Notes of dried berries, cedar, meat and truffles with some mushrooms. Full body. Chewy and very rich. A lot of wood now, but shows wonderful intensity and power. Give it two or three years to soften." James Suckling

      "The Fèlsina 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia is true, elegant and bright. This wine is teaming with inner energy and beautiful fruit resonance that comes forward with forest berry, tilled earth, cassis and pressed violet. These aromas are held in tension, creating a crest or halo that radiates from deep inside. It remains mid-weight in approach, but don't underestimate the length and polished mouthfeel that drives a long and very elegant finish. I came back to my sample 24 hours later and appreciated the perfectly aligned and integrated character of the tannins. Give this wine plenty of time to evolve and flesh out in your cellar."
