The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia more than holds its own in this complete vertical. It shows elements of both a cold year in its mid-weight structure and a warmer vintage in its radiant fruit, a combination that represents an attractive stylistic middle ground. I very much like the sense of energy and intensity here. Bright acidity and youthful tannins frame the supple fruit. It will be interesting to see whether the 2009 develops along the lines of the cooler vintage Rancias, or whether the juiciness of the fruit will ultimately prevail in the wine's balance. Either way, the 2009 is yet another terrific Rancia from Felsina. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. A well of cherry and licorice notes draws you in, with meat, cherry, currant and spice flavors backed by beefy tannins. This is on the lean, taut side, but vibrant, pure and full of personality. Think steak. To be released late 2012. Best from 2014 through 2025. 50,000 cases made. -BS Dark ruby-red. Conc...

A well of cherry and licorice notes draws you in with meat cherry currant and spice flavors backed by beefy tannins. This is on the lean taut side but vibrant pure and full of personality. Think steak. To be released late 2012. Best from 2014 through 2025. BS Wine Spectator.
