($50; 100% sangiovese; 14% alcohol) Dark red. Fresh red cherry, bay leaf and underbrush aromas are complemented by a strong mineral nuance. Starts silky, then turns minerally, brisk and firm in the middle, showing a penetrating quality to the red cherry, ripe plum and delicate herbal flavors. Finishes seamless and very long, but I found this to be a somewhat more backward, imploded example of Rancia than usual.

This is a big wine, full bodied and quite tannic but the flavor profile will wow you. The complexity and layers shine with each taste with dark cherry, wild blueberry, wet stone, and a long finish. It settled down after the first night. This is a great wine

Refined, like an al fresco summer dinner in Tuscany, this glass-coating sangiovese unveils flavors of leather, rosemary and dark chocolate.

About This Producer


Felsina, for all of its current, well-deserved respect and fame, is the product of an ancient and humanitarian history. In the 12th century this estate was a roadside hospital directed by Benedictine monks who tended to the pilgrims and merchants traveling the Strata de Rancia.

The winery is located within the most south-eastern part of the Chianti Classico zone near Siena. In 1961, Domenico Poggiali purchased the property and 57 hectares of vineyards. His son-in-law, Giuseppe Mazzocolin, currently runs the estate with the assistance of renowned oenologic consultant Franco Bernabei and vineyard overseer Agostino Buracchi. Together, they have wrought a portfolio of wines that recognize the mystical world of Sangioveto.

The Cru Rancia and the Fontalloro are two of the premiere wines coming out of Tuscany today.
