From Chianti to the Crete Senesi
Fèlsina is located on the southeast edge of the Chianti Classico appellation, between the last spurs of the Chianti hills and the beginning of the Ombrone valley. The entire Fèlsina estate covers 600 hectares, of which 95 is planted with vines. From a geological viewpoint, Fèlsina is a “frontier land” nestled between the Chianti Classico and Crete Senesi areas, in the direction of Montalcino.
Essentially rocky calcareous soil, with a preponderance of laminated marl, are common characteristics in Chianti, along with layers of sandstone with silt and clay, with marine sediments rich in minerals found in other Chianti areas. The effects are incredibly uniform and yield characteristics, which are specific expressions of the terrain and Fèlsina’s wines.
The result of a unique marriage between land and viticulture, the toil of human hands, science and wisdom, the vineyards of Fèlsina express the uniqueness of the terroir, landscapes, scents, the sounds of this corner of Tuscany, reviving history and tradition.
