Wine Critic Reviews:

Felsina's single-vineyard 2003 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia presents more overt toasted oak notes along with darker, riper fruit in a structured expression of Chianti Classico. With some time in the glass complex notes of smoke, tobacco, licorice, mint and black cherries emerge, completing this gorgeous and intensely satisfying wine. In two separate tastings I found the Rancia more complex than the Fontalloro, most likely owing to the poorer soils of the Rancia vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.
Producer Felsina: With a single-minded dedication to expressing the potential of their precious Sangiovese and a level of talent that can compete with the most reputable wineries in the world, Fèlsina is a winery we highly recommend keeping an eye on. Considered influential visionaries when it comes to Chianti wine, they keep on proving their prowess with staggering consistency, turning out amazing wines every single year. Let yourself get lost in the dark, inky elixir, as your worries slip away into nothingness and you are left with a feeling of serenity and nostalgia, reminiscing about defining triumphs in your life. Wild berries and a liberal dose of spices help the attack feel more powerful than most, and your mouth will be perfumed for hours after drinking.
