The 2015 Felsina "Rancia" has the potential to be the highest rated Chianti Classico Riserva... ever.

Felsina's "Rancia" is compared to a Brunello more than any other Chianti in its class. So, what is it that makes this Chianti darling so special year after year?

Location. Location. Location.

Felsina's Rancia comes from the prized Berardenga sub-region within Chianti Classico. Other than the Tuscan subregions of Montalcino and Bulgari, Berardenga may be one of the most prized crus in all of Tuscany.

In any vintage, Rancia is an amazing Riserva Chianti. But 2015 - all across Europe - is proving to be a vintage for the record books.

What do we love about this wine?

A rich and sophisticated red, the 2015 Felsina Rancia is a layered Sangiovese with dark cherry, dried exotic spice, earth, wild berry, roasted herbs; savory, young raspberry and truffle notes are framed by silky yet well-defined tannins.

Enjoy it now! You are also going to want to set aside some bottles of this historic vintage and let it evolve for up to a decade.

"The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a tremendous wine." The Wine Advocate

Summary


VINOUS

97 / 100

[94 - 97 Barrel Sample]

"The 2015 Chianti Classico Rancia is one of the most finessed young Rancias I have ever tasted. Silky, aromatically precise and nuanced to the core, the 2015 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. This is an impressive showing."

DECANTER

94 / 100

"This leads with subtle vanilla aromas before wild forest berries and violets take over. This is very polished and silky in texture...The finish lingers, promising much more to come. Highly satisfying."
