2004 was characterised by a mild winter and a variable spring, with alternate spells of warm and cool weather and rain in the spring.
The ripening season progressed steadily, with optimal diurnal temperatures encouraging the development of complex aromas in the grapes. The grapes were hand-picked until the 10th of October.
After rigorous selection, the clusters were subjected to a natural drying process on mats, until January/February of the following year.
They were then de-stemmed and pressed. The must was transferred to sealed, 100 litre oak casks containing the “mother”, the gelatinous remnant of previous vintages.
After seven years in the “vinsantaia” loft area, the wine was bottle-aged for six months before release.
This 470 hectare estate is located northeast of Siena in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, on the southern border of the Chianti Classico zone.
Fèlsina epitomises the powerful style of southern Chianti, where the wines are stylistically more akin to those from Montalcino than their fellow Chianti from Fontodi or Isole e Olena.
Domenico Poggiali bought the estate in 1966. Giuseppe Mazzocolin, son-in-law of Domenico entered the family business in late 1970s and played a significant role in the growth of the winery.
Since 1990 Giovanni Poggiali, Domenico‘s grandson, has joined the management and continues his grandfather’s enterprise with the same passion. http://www.libertywines.co.uk/index.htm?pageto=prddtldrt&producerCD=GFE01IT&crsr=5&-session=libertyWines:42F949A307f0300718JvUo10872A
Giuseppe Mazzocolin is now less involved in the running of the estate, and consultant enologist Franco Bernabei is very much at the helm of the winemaking team.
