This is the 1959 Chianti Classico from Andrea and his father, the Reserva , 12.7 alcohol by volume.  he dry white AI di CASTELCOSA bt Franco Furlan / Alessandro's father / , too ... and I have my own home-made vinegar in them now. Andre Fossi will be in the store, Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits tasting his wines on Friday, November 21st, 2014 from 5 to 8PM  JOIN US< NEVER any charge! This will be great, trust me. We had the FOSSI Chianti Classico wines going back to the 1958, and we would regularly taste them with our customers. What a great and special treat that was. Cheers,   TONY   11/ 16 / 2014

  • Paul Jameson I remember the '58 Fossi. Found my notes. Bought at Eagle on 8/12/78 for $9.99. Opened 10/21/78. On the scoring system I was using then, I gave it 12 1/2 pts, which rated as Very Good.

    I had a second bottle of the '58 on 10/3/79, and my notes read, "Perhaps it has been open too long, but tastes considerably more past peak than when I had it a year ago. Still quite nice."
