I Sistri

The history of Fèlsina Chardonnay begins with grafts from French clones on the nearby estate of Farnetella, owned by the winery. New vineyards have been planted at Felsina in the area that rises from the Ombrone river up to the Poggiolo farm where soils are looser than in the Chianti Classico appellation, using a variety of clones and rootstocks that carry forward the research begun decades ago. First vintage 1987

The wine undergoes maturation on the lees with daily programmed batonnage, it is racked and assembled in August-September and bottled aged for at least 3 months before release.
