Felsina Berardenga Rancia, Chianti Classico Riserva Italy 2012


Rancia is a pure Sangiovese wine, refined and elegant. Rich in flavours, spiciness, florals, black and red fruits, toasted notes accompanied by crispiness. Extremely fine and expressive, with a very persistent finish. Great Chianti Classico!

Decanter World Wine Award 2016 - Platinum 95 points

93 points, Gilbert & Gaillard - Beautiful garnet. Mature nose of roasted coffee, fine spices, mild tobacco and ripe stone fruit. Soft attack leading into a robust, dense and profound palate supported by a solid, well-integrated structure. Subtle Havana wood. Magnificent. All-set for a long future.

92 points, Monica Larner - Robert Parker - Fèlsina's 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardenga is full, generous and reflects the house style of this celebrated estate. Fruit is sourced from 35-year-old vines and the harvest takes place at various intervals in order to ensure optimal ripeness. Soft cherry and spice give the wine an elegant approach.

16,5 points, Richard Hemming MW for Jancis Robinson - 100% Sangiovese, 16 months in barriques, first and second fill. Vanilla, sweet spice, milk chocolate, dry tannin and plenty of fruit density. Violet finish.

The Rancia vineyard takes its name from the ancient farm that stands where there was once a Benedictine monastery. Fèlsina is located on the southeast edge of the Chianti Classico appellation, between the last spurs of the Chianti hills and the beginning of the Ombrone valley in Montalcino, where this great Tuscan cru is produced, a wine that needs no introduction.
