The wine appears a luminous straw yellow tending towards green, and releases a long lingering bead of very fine bubbles. The bouquet is crisp and delicate, with emphatic floral and fruit notes, along with impressions of Golden Delicious apples and fresh baked bread. The palate is dry, full-flavoured, and very well balanced. A fresh acidity drives the lengthy finish hinting of aromatic tropical fruit.
Quality Sparkling Wine.
60% Sangiovese, 20% Pinot Nero, 20% Chardonnay.
Northeast of Siena, in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, on the southern border of the Chianti Classico denomination.
About 5.400 vines per hectare.
Exclusively by hand into small boxes.
Starting in the mid-1980s, in-depth research was carried out Fèlsina’s terrains to identify the most suitable clones; shoots were then propagated and planted, and the musts micro-vinified.
The grapes are rigorously quality – selected, then gently pressed; the must is cold-settled, racked, then fermented at a controlled temperature. In spring, the new wine is bottled with a mixture of sugar and cultured yeasts, then undergoes its secondary fermentation. After 20-22 months of fermentation and maturation, the wine is disgorged, then topped up with a liqueur d’expédition. After a further minimum of 3 months ageing, the wine is released.
