The perfect house wine for me
It is not easy to get a Chianti this good for such a relative small prize. Dark ruby red, cherries, almonds on the nose, bit of oak, not too much, medium tannins. This Fèlsina Chianti Classico is the perfect house wine for me. I already enjoyed the 2013 so I ordered 14 bottles of the 2015. Better be safe than sorry:)
