    "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2017

    Sparkling, medium-dense ruby garnet. Powerful and energetic, expressive and dense is the Rancia Riserva from the single vineyard of the same name. The bouquet 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 pleasurable length. A wine that requires sensitivity and/or a few years of rest. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Mid ruby with orange tinges. Exotic spice and cherry fruit on the nose. Tangy cherry fruit that builds up on the palate. Polished tannins on the finish. Ready now but has good potential." Jancis Robinson

    "In 2017, Giovanni Poggiali describes the work in the vineyard as focused on the vines' root system to reduce water stress. Harvest started 15 days earlier than average and at the beginning of September he did a qualitative thinning to get rid of any shrivelled bunches or those showing problems with ripening. Fèlsina's flagship wine, Rancia is still brooding. Plum and tar show up on a backdrop of vanilla and exotic spice. Though fruit is supple, layers of assertive tannins need time to loosen their grip. Appetizingly savoury, this finishes with an intense, irony character." Decanter

    "Cherry, plum, juniper, earth and chocolate flavors highlight this sleek, intense red. There is depth and length here, along with a solid structure, yet this will require time to unravel and reveal all its facets." Wine Spectator

    "Rancia is always one of my favorite wines from this storied appellation (and the Castelnuovo Berardenga subzone). This vintage threw quite a few challenges at the winemaking team, but the Fèlsina 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia emerges intact, intense and beautiful. It is virtually unscathed by the heat and drought that marked this growing season. In fact, that brilliant radiance, linearity and energy of the Sangiovese grape comes through loud and clear. The bouquet is redolent of red fruit, wild berry, toasted almond, violet and potting soil." Robert Parker

    "Plenty of fruit concentration with cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and lots of concentration. Intense and rich." James Suckling

    "The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is incredibly polished and sophisticated. Silky tannins give the 2017 its racy, sleek personality. Over the last year, the 2017 has really settled into a gorgeous place. There is plenty of vintage 2017 intensity, but Rancia is distinctly medium in body and restrained. The wilder side of Sangiovese, one of the signatures of Rancia and Fèlsina more broadly, tastes a bit baked out. I can't wait to see how the 2017 develops over the coming years and decades." Vinous

    Schon jetzt geöffnet benötig der Riserva noch etwas Zeit, ist noch verschlossen. Habe den Wein dann einen Tag stehen lassen, wurde immer besser. Die beste Zeit dieses sehr guten Riserva kommt noch, vermutlich 2025+.
