    "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

    Powerful and energetic, expressive and dense is the Rancia Riserva from the same named vineyard. The scent is characterized by a deliciously ripe and full-bodied fruit as well as mineral notes. The taste is earthy, rich in tannins and terroir, beautifully articulated, fine and with an enjoyable length. A wine that requires empathy and/or a few years of rest. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sparkling, medium-density ruby garnet. Fine nose with notes of fresh cherries, raspberries and pomegranate. A lot of juicy fruit in the base and course, opens with fine-meshed, at the same time very dense tannin, which carries the wine, in the aftertaste fine earthy notes, a classic! Falstaff

    "Lustrous mid ruby. Hints of cherry fruit and cumin on the nose. Succulent cherry fruit and raspberry coulis with crunchy tannins on the palate. Lovely length and bite." Jancis Robinson

    "This features ripe, juicy black cherry and black currant fruit, with licorice, earth and tobacco flavors. Firm tannins frame the elements, imparting structure and complexity for the long haul. Terrific texture." Wine Spectator

    "A decadent Chianti Classico Riserva that shows plenty of cedar, spices, leather, wet earth and tobacco, but also really fresh undertones of dried orange rind and strawberries. Integrated and structured on the palate with a velvety mouthfeel and mouth-refreshing acidity." James Suckling

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia knocks it out of the park. Like the other new releases from Fèlsina, this pure expression of Sangiovese needs more time to evolve and improve with bottle age. But even at this young stage, you are made fully aware of the beautiful intensity and complexity of the quality fruit at its core. There is so much energy and tension here, further reinforced by the fresh acidity of the vintage. There are vibrant tones of wild cherry, raspberry and spice, followed up by white truffle and tilled earth." Robert Parker

    "The south-facing Rancia vineyard reaches altitudes of 420 metres, overlooking the lower-lying vineyards of Colli Senesi. It boasts complex soils of calcareous clay layered with the chalky white limestone-like alberese and schistose galestro. This 2016 vintage is simply stunning. It's stately yet gracious, with personality for days, leading with a sumptuous nose of smoke, exotic spice and iron-rich earth. Ripe fruit coats the mouth yet it remains buoyant and tangy as chalky tannins charge in to frame the palate. A seductive wine with an appetising, savoury edge and a long, long life ahead." Decanter

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is powerful, rich and explosive, with tremendous drive. Even so, several bottles have been quite closed. That is probably a very good sign for the long-term, but readers should not plan on touching a bottle anytime soon. A wine of vertical drive and aromatic nuance, the 2016 Rancia is super-complexed. Only with a few hours of air does it show the nuances and layers that were so evident from barrel." VINOUS
