    Sweet berry and perfume on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky, refined tannins. The attractive finish is subtle and fruity. Drink now. 3,750 cases made.

    The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a vibrant, focused wine that flows with the essence of dark fruit, minerals and flowers. The wine possesses gorgeous length and proportion, all of which is framed by powerful yet well-integrated tannins. Simply put, this is a superb Chianti that also happens to be one of the best relative values in fine, age worthy wine. The Rancia is made from vines planted on poor soils at 420 meters above sea level. In 2006, the Rancia spent 16 months in French oak, of which 60% was new.

    Crimson rim with red-purple core. Quite dark, but with good clarity. Black fruit and mild sweet oak on the muted nose. Palate shows dark, plummy and overripe sweet cherry fruit, with high glycerin levels, medium-plus to high tannins, medium-minus acidity, some medicinal flavors, nice minerality, talc, full body, and some background forest scents. Long, 60+ second finish full of plummy fruit and powdery tannins. This is excellent with plenty of room to get better.

    Dark ruby red in color. Clean developing bouquet of earth, graphite and dark fruit. Medium bodied on the palate with black cherry, and diminishing oak again. Tannins are very high at the end coating the teeth but they work with this one. Not an overtly complex wine, but enjoyable and classic

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.
