Fèlsina is an Italian wine estate founded in 1966, and situated at the southeast edge of the Chianti Classico appellation in Tuscany.
That being said, the estate is best known for its supple, aromatic Super Tuscan wine Fontallaro, and the spicy, intense Rancia Chianti Classico Riserva, both made from Tuscany's most important variety, Sangiovese. Grapes for Fontallaro are sourced from vineyards straddling the Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi appellations, and the wine receives around up to 22 months in French oak, some of which is new.
It was once one of many estates owned by the Dukes of Tuscany, and was farmed mainly by sharecroppers growing olives until World War II. Now, 95 of the estate's 600 hectares (235 of 1480 acres) are planted to vines, generally on rocky, chalky soil with layers of mineral-rich marine sediments. The vineyard has been extended and replanted largely using massal selection – taking cuttings from numerous top-performing plants rather than planting clones of a single vine.
