The wine

I Sistri is the Tuscan chardonnay produced by one of the most renowned and reliable wineries in Chianti Classico: Fattoria di Fèlsina. This is a white wine that has found a perfect home in a red region par excellence. And there is a reason for this: it is a white wine made a little like a red, i.e., it is fermented and aged in barriques in contact with its own yeasts. All in the context of a viticulture that pays close attention to clonal selection and eco-sustainability.

To obtain a chardonnay as rich and elegant as the best examples from Burgundy, attention is paid to every last detail both in the vineyard and in the cellar. The result is a Chardonnay that's distinctly classy, with sensual and intoxicating aromas, yet all the time very well-balanced: exotic fruits, peaches, orange peel, lemon essential oil, almonds, butter, honey and delicate spicy notes which serve as a perfect counterbalance to its mineral undertone. This bouquet heralds the sensations we find on the palate: smoothness, richness and a delicious fruit-forward character.

Fèlsina

Fèlsina

In Etruscan, Fèlsina means "place of hospitality and dining". And indeed right here, within the ancient walls of this farm that you must visit and experience, our customers have found one of the safest and most reliable ports of Chianti Classico, where the region on its border southward verges towards warmer climates and produces complex, full-bodied, velvety, smooth wines. In the Fèlsina winemaking tradition, there are no duds among the Castelnuovo barriques. The great Chianti...
