2009 Felsina, Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG (RT92+) An impressive showing for the lovely 2009 Felsina CCR, this 100% Sangiovesi reveals the magic of this vintage. Showing very fresh and vibrant for Chianti of 12 years of age and still hanging on to its youthful vigor. Its dark, brooding Berardegna fruit reveals a dense, deep ruby hue as notes of black cherry, aromatic pine resin, sous bois, Tuscan spice and hints of orange zest and summer flowers emerge. The mouthfeel is smooth and caressing, packed with rich ripe fruit, supportive acidity and the sweet, ripe tannins remain fresh and edgy. This is just now turning the corner to early peak drinking but should continue to age exceptionally well, especially for the price point. My suggestion: buy this wine from more recent vintages and cellar them. Chianti Classico remains a top value category! Drink now-2034+
