PRODUCT INFORMATION

The ancient tradition of “Vin Santo di Fèlsina” is embodied in the passage of the “mother” (the thick substance remaining from previous vintages) from the previous year’s casks to the next. The process has been modernized through careful grape selection, attention to the drying process, by adding the Sangiovese varietal to characterize Fèlsina’s signature style, as well as by meticulous care in vinification and ageing.

Vineyard age
From the selection of vineyards in the seventies – eighties were conducted thorough investigations to identify the most suitable parent plants at drawing grafting and replanting took place in the early 2000s.

VINIFICATION
After rigorous selection, the clusters are subjected to a natural drying process on mats, until January-February of the following year. They are then de-stemmed and pressed, and the must is transferred to sealed, 100 litre aok casks containing the “mother”, a thick substance remaining from previous vintages. After 7 years in the “vinsantaia” loft area, the wine is bottle aged for a minimum of 6 months.

SENSORY PROFILE
