"The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is one of the most finessed young Rancias I have ever tasted. Silky, aromatically precise and nuanced to the core, the 2015 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. This is an impressive showing."
95 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com
Plenty of dark plums, black cherries, blackberry pie, cedar, tobacco and a hint of orange rind. There’s a real vitality to the palate, which is so well carved out by firm, savory tannins and seriously bright acidity. A chewy finish.
94 Wine Spectator
The fine cherry, plum, leather and spice flavors pick up accents of chocolate, earth and mineral as this red gathers steam. Builds to a firmly structured finish, where sweet fruit and dusty tannins linger. Drink now through 2028. 3,333 cases made. –BS
Produced since 1983, Rancia hails from a 9ha vineyard sitting at 418 metres above sea level. It's a massal selection where the old vines provide material for newer plantings. Aged in French barriques (50% new), this leads with subtle vanilla aromas before wild forest berries and violets take over. This is very polished and silky in texture, although the tannins build stealthily and an underlying iron nuance adds intrigue. The finish lingers, promising much more to come. Highly satisfying.
