95+ points Luca Gardini: "100% Sangiovese from vineyard located in the highly-skilled area of Castelnuovo Berardenga. 12 months in Slavonian oak barrels, a wine that shows hints of small red fruits on the nose, currant and pomegranate, touches of fresh pepper leaf and a floral ending, with nuances of lavender. The mouth is crispy and savoury. Long sip with long-lasting persistence. (Jun 2021)"

94 points James Suckling: "A beautiful, creamy red with cherry and chocolate character. Hints of dried earth. It’s medium-to full-bodied with creamy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. shows firmness and tension. Very drinkable now, but will improve beautifully with age. Drink or hold. (8/11/21)"

92 points Michaela Morris (Decanter): "At the southeastern limit of Chianti Classico, Fèlsina’s expansive vineyards look towards Montalcino. The annata is assembled from various parcels rising from 320 to 420 metres on rocky calcareous soil with layers of sandstone. As usual, it is more earthy than fruity, bringing in evocative accents of violet, liquorice and pepper. The palate is superbly textured with fine, grainy tannins providing a sensuous grip. Dark fruited and tangy with admirable depth, it will drink well now and over the next decade. Finishes with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Drinking Window: 2021-2031. (Mar 2021)"

92 points Luca Maroni.

91 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "One of the best vantage points for drinking Chianti Classico is at the entry level. A wine like the Fèlsina 2019 Chianti Classico Berardenga offers so much freshness and cheerful, easy-drinking appeal. It's a terrific partner to pizza, pasta or basically anything on the trattoria menu tonight. This wine shows bright cherry flavors and redcurrant with pressed flowers and some tangy blood orange. It is steady and generous, with lots of bright primary intensity. Drink: 2021-2026. (Oct 2021)"

91 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$31 list] The 2019 Chianti Classico Berardenga is a classic wine for the year. Bright, perfumed and light on its feet, the 2019 Chianti Classico Berardenga is so wonderfully expressive. There is a feeling of vibrancy to the 2019 that is hugely appealing. A wine of energy more than power. Crushed red berry fruit, cinnamon linger in a gorgeous Chianti Classico that is more about transparency than power. Drink: 2024-2029. (Sep 2021)"
