Pairing a Sangiovese with a minced meat and tomato based dish is one of the perfect combinations. Fattoria di Felsina has been a very reliable producer and this 2006 Felsina Chianti Classico does not disappoint. This is a medium to full bodied wine with red and black cherry flavours complemented by earthy flavours. The mouthfeel is satisfying, although not very persisting, as the wine's acidity cuts through the food. This wine does not deliver enough on its own, but it is an excellent food wine: not imposing, but strong enough to be an equal partner.
