Felsina Fattoria di Chianti Classico Berardenga Rancia Riserva 2004

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2004 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is pure silk on the palate. The 2004 is never going to be a huge Rancia. Instead, it is the wine's elegance and poise that stand out most.

This en-lightened land lived an extraordinary moment in Italy’s history, witnessing, if only for a few moments, the dream come true of an ideal city: Siena.

I have tasted Felsina's 2004 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia on at least three separate occasions and have never been anything less than deeply impressed. This is a serious Chianti endowed with endless layers of sweet dark cherries, smoke, minerals, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
