Felsina I Sistri Berardenga Chardonnay 2016

The Felsina I Sistri Berardenga Chardonnay is also an IGT, Indicazione Geografica Typica Toscana, or a typical geographic representation of Tuscany.Its the same thing you see after the name of a Super Tuscan, and these letters tell you that this wine is a solid representation of that magical terroir.Yes, they make great white wines there too! Its got beautiful full body, with no heaviness whatsoever. The result, a beautifully balanced Chardonnay withwhite and light fruit, good acidity, a creaminess that is addictive, and just the slightest suggestion of vanilla and spice. For those of you who lovefoie gras, but arent wild about Sauternes, try your first glass with seared foie gras over brioche toast with a drizzle of sweet and tart cherry balsamicreduction. Poached salmon with a creamy lemon caper sauce is a terrific entree option. Pumpkin ravioli with a brown butter sauce and freshly grated Parmesanis our go-to meatless option. Dont forget: Chardonnay isnt just for dinner. Try a glass of this I Sistri with a classic eggs Benedict and you may neverhave another Mimosa again. Buon appetito winelovers!

James Suckling: "An opulent Chardonnay with all the bells and whistles, giving the wine so much cooked apples, lemons, vanilla and hintsof butterscotch. Full-bodied, bright and lively. Goes on for minutes. Best ever? Drink now." Sep 2018Robert Parker, Jr.s Wine Advocate: "The oak-aged 2016 I Sistri (100 percent Chardonnay) opens to a soft golden color with bright luminosity.There is a lot of character and aromatic intensity here, thanks to the optimally ripened quality of fruit. You get warmer tones of peach, pear and apricot,but you also get cooler tones of mint and white almond. Several months in oak give this wine a mid-weight feel with toasted flavors and creamy density.Drink 2018-2024." Oct 2018Winery: "Straw-yellow color. On the nose characteristics of tropical fruit and peach with pleasant hints of spice and well-integratedvanilla. The palate is full and slightly creamy with an elegant and well-balanced structure to ensure better acidity and a fresh flavor.The history of Felsina Chardonnay begins with grafts from French clones on the nearby estate of Farnetella, owned by the winery. New vineyards have beenplanted at Fe_lsina in the area that rises from the Ombrone river up to the Poggiolo farm, where soils are looser than in the Chianti Classico appellation,using a variety of clones and rootstocks that carry forward the research begun decades ago. First vintage 1987."The Name: "This wine is named (I Sistri) after an ancient instrument from ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. The instrument and its musicwas dedicated to the worship of Isis, the godess of agriculture and birth."
