Golden yellow, with coppery highlights. Peach, apricot, pineapple and tropical dried fruit aromas. Consistency on the palate, softness and elegance nicely structured by the oak barrels. Wine with great balance, favorable acidity and a well-harmonized residual sugar. Long in the mouth.

The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico represens a blend of Trebbiano and Malvasia del Chianti that is aged in small oak barrels called caratelli for seven long years. This is a beautiful expression that is not too sweet or heavy. Indeed, it offers a noticeable level of elegance and sophistication that you don't always find in this category of dessert wine from central Italy. The bouquet shows candied fruit, honey, brown sugar and grilled herb. Fèlsina produces 9,000 bottles of this wine, making it one of the biggest producers of Vin Santo in the Chianti Classico area.
