2006 Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia DOCG 750 ml
Chianti, Tuscany, Italy

"Rancia" remains not only one of the very best Chianti Classicos made but also one of the top wines of the 2006 vintage. For those unfamiliar, this special single vineyard Sangiovese comes from a 2.4 acre plot in the Castelnuovo Berardegna section of the Chianti Classico zone and is one of the best wine values in Tuscany. It's a well-structured, age-worthy Chianti that is simply outstanding.

Tasting Note:  Wine Advocate #184: "The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a vibrant, focused wine that flows with the essence of dark fruit, minerals and flowers. The wine possesses gorgeous length and proportion, all of which is framed by powerful yet well-integrated tannins. Simply put, this is a superb Chianti that also happens to be one of the best relative values in fine, age worthy wine. The Rancia is made from vines planted on poor soils at 420 meters above sea level. In 2006, the Rancia spent 16 months in French oak, of which 60% was new."
