Felsina Berardenga

Felsina Berardenga Logo

This 470 hectare estate is located northeast of Siena, in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, on the southern border of the Chianti Classico production area.

Felsina epitomises the powerful style of southern Chianti, where the wines are stylistically more akin to those from Montalcino than their fellow Chianti from Fontodi or Isole e Olena. Domenico Poggiali bought the estate in 1966.

Giuseppe Mazzocolin, son-in-law of Domenico entered the family business in late 1970s and played a significant role in the growth of the winery. Since 1990 Giovanni Poggiali, grandson of Domenico has joined the management and continues his grandfather`s enterprise with the same passion. Giuseppe Mazzocolin is now less involved in the running of the estate but consultant enologist Franco Bernabei is still very much at the helm of the winemaking team.
