We've had as much fun selling these Chianti Classicos as we've had drinking them...and that is a lot! So, it's a Chianti Classico greatest hits reprise: the fantastic value Castellare di Castellina '17 and the benchmark Felsina Rancia '16, which is fresh off another huge review, this time 95 points from Wine Spectator.

94 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "A beam of pure cherry and blackberry fruit defines this intense, racy red, which is firm and tensile, with fine balance and a lingering aftertaste of vibrant fruit, graphite and tobacco flavors. Sangioveto and Canaiolo. Drink now through 2033."
Us: We are receiving great feedback on this already! A beautiful wine with far more class than the price would indicate. It was fantastic right when opened and even better after a few hours and the next day. Pure cherry goodness, my mouth is watering thinking about that last sip. - Marcus
$49.45in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($54.95 regular)
95 points Wine Spectator: "This features ripe, juicy black cherry and black currant fruit, with licorice, earth and tobacco flavors. Firm tannins frame the elements, imparting structure and complexity for the long haul. Terrific texture. Best from 2022 through 2042."
Us: Also 96+ points from Antonio Galloni and 96 points from Wine Advocate, and we don't even know how many points from us! But seriously, the '16 Rancia is a must-have for any Italian wine collector or for that matter, any wine fan.
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
