THE REVIEW

You'd swear this 96 + point Chianti was a Brunello di Montalcino! Year after year, Felsina's Rancia Riserva Chianti Classico is compared to a Brunello more than any other stellar Chianti in its class. So, what is it that makes this Chianti darling so special year after year? Location, location, location.
    Felsina's Rancia bottling comes from the prized Berardenga sub-region within Chianti. Other than the Tuscan subregions of Montalcino and Bulgari, Berardenga may be one of the most prized crus in all of Tuscany.
    We enjoyed this Riserva Chianti so much, we are offering it in the following three sizes:

      2013 Felsina Rancia Chianti Classico Riserva 375ml
      2013 Felsina Rancia Chianti Classico Riserva 750ml
      2013 Felsina Rancia Chianti Classico Riserva 1.5L

    "Rancia is a dark, moody and sophisticated wine. It does not reveal itself immediately or in any obvious way. Instead, it doses out its intensity in careful measurements. The whole performance is seductive to say the least. That slow momentum leads to dark cherry with spice, grilled herb, wet earth and dried rose." Wine AdvocateRead More »
