Fontalloro grapes come from vineyards straddling the border between Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi. The vineyards lying within the Chianti Classico appellation are in the highest area of Fèlsina while those in the Chianti Colli Senesi are a little lower down (but still 407-330 meters above sea level). With a southwestern exposure, the grapes are influenced by diverse soil compositions: on the Chianti Classico side the soil is stony and calcareous; on the Crete Senesi side the soil is sandy, loamy and silty with pebbles and marine sediments. The first vintage of this highly collectible wine was in 1983.

Felsina got its start during a very challenging time for Italian viticulture. Founded in 1966 when Domenico Poggiali bought the estate and invested heavily in the quality of the wine and in assembling a talented, innovative young team. Felsina is at the forefront fighting against monoculture in the region and their estate includes woods, olive groves and streams, smaller fields for cultivated and wild herbs and medicinal plants like alfalfa, sorghum, millet, sunflower, field beans; all contributing to the preservation of biodiversity. The Wine is clearly the beneficiary and Felsina has built a deserved reputation for excellence in recent years, all while remaining in the hands of the Poggiali family for almost 60 years.
