Felsina Berardenga Rancia, Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 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!

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.

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.

There's a lot of grip to this red, with earth, cherry and tobacco flavors. Leans toward the tannins in the balance but remains vibrant and long. Pair with a hearty ragù or salumi. Best from 2018 through 2028. 4,000 cases made.

100% Sangiovese, 16 months in barriques, first and second fill. Vanilla, sweet spice, milk chocolate, dry tannin and plenty of fruit density. Violet finish.
