The 2016 Felsina Rancia is all class. Rich, red fruit, tension and fairly austere tannins. Not as giving as it might be. Glad I used Coravin on this one. I'll check in on it in a while!

Silky/velvety, rich Sangiovese w/ less oak than most vintages of this cuvée. Pure raspberry fruit & some dark chocolate. A very well balanced Chianti with many layers. Needs at least one hour to open up. Tasted on 1/1/20

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is powerful, rich and explosive, with tremendous drive. Even so, several bottles have been quite closed. That is probably a very good sign for the long-term, but readers should not plan on touching a bottle anytime soon. A wine of vertical drive and aromatic nuance, the 2016 Rancia is super-complexed. Only with a few hours of air does it show the nuances and layers that were so evident from barrel. The 2016 is a painfully stubborn wine in the early going, but it will offer superb drinking pleasure for those who can wait. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2019)
