One of the World's Greatest Wines: 2015 Chianti Classico Riservas
Antonio Galloni, who we regard as the best Italian wine critic, recently published his reviews of 2015 Chianti Classico in which he called Felsina's flagship Chianti Classico Rancia Riserva 2015 "quite simply one of the world's greatest and most iconic wines." Felsina is one of our favorite wineries in the world so we were stoked to see the high praise.
So today, we're offering a last-chance reprise on 2015 Rancia and Poggerino's Chianti Classico Riserva Bugiallia 2015, another awesome Chianti from the outstanding '15 vintage. If seeing "Chianti" still makes you think of that rough red in a basket, throw that image out with the glass gallon jug of "Burgundy" and "Chablis," because these wines will blow the doors off!
97+ points Vinous, Antonio Galloni:"If Tuscany had a formal vineyard classification Rancia would be a Grand Cru. And that is exactly what comes through in the 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia. Silky, sensual and finessed to the core, the 2015 is absolutely stellar. The ripeness of the tannins allows the natural radiance of the year to come through loud and clear. The 2015 is a special. Rancia is quite simply one of the world's greatest and most iconic wines."
What's left to say? Well, I can say that I've had a couple bottles of Rancia '15 (and a couple glasses at the winery in September) and it's all true. To have access to such a great wine for the relative value is incredible. - Marcus
$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular)
96 points Wine Spectator: "A mix of pure cherry and cigar humidor aromas lead off. The cherry theme continues, supported by rosemary, iron and tar flavors. Big, burly tannins line the finish and should carry this wine for another few decades."
Super-impressive, broad and deep, I found it rich and velvety with awesome underlying structure and pure Sangiovese brilliance. - Marcus
