Sometimes a Chianti Classico can also be a supertuscan and so it is with Rancia... a rich and beautiful wine that maintains a wonderful tension between seamlessly elegant cherries, polished background oak and a savoury blade of acidity that adds length to the finish.
The 2010 Chianti Classico Reserva Rancia is chiseled and focused. It offers a full spectrum of Sangiovese characteristics with balsamic herb and medicinal tones followed by crushed stone and delicate clove or nutmeg. Rancia is equally impressive in the mouth with firm structure and enduring fruit flavours.
One of the great Chianti Classico Riservas with an impeccable record for ageing. Earth, wet moss, white pepper and fig leaf nose with subtle plummy fruit. Depth and texture on the palate, quite austere with great concentration and savoury grip in the finish.
