2013 Felsina ‘Rancia’ Chianti Classico Riserva

WS 92WA 95JS 93DC 93VN 96
Wine Spectator 92: This red is dense and smooth, with muscular tannins supporting the black cherry, plum, sweet spice and earth flavors. Stays fresh and long on the aftertaste of earth, spice and tobacco notes. Best from 2018 through 2030.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95: Here is another highlight of the vintage. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a dark, moody and sophisticated wine. It does not reveal itself immediately or in any obvious way. Instead, it doses out its intensity in careful measurements. The whole performance is seductive to say the least. That slow momentum leads to dark cherry with spice, grilled herb, wet earth and dried rose. Felsina's Riserva Rancia is a very elegant wine, both on the nose and in the mouth.
James Suckling 93: A structured Chianti Classico riserva with polished tannins and juicy fruit. Hints of chocolate and meat under the ripe fruit. Full to medium body, polished texture. From organically grown grapes.
Decanter 93: Sweet scents of cherry, milled grain, semolina. Quietly enticing, a wine of ample ripeness. Already evolving towards secondary notes of oak underbrush, wild mushroom and liquorice.
Vinous 96: Fèlsina's 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia bristles with energy, with veins of underlying acidity that give the wine its focus and drive. Dark red cherry, plum, rose petal, herb and licorice are some of the signatures. Most of the Fèlsina Chianti Classicos are defined by their dark fruit and savory notes, but the Rancia is also wonderfully bright and lifted from start to finish while staying very much true to the house style. Today, the Rancia gives the impression it will unwind at a glacial pace. I imagine most bottles of the 2013 will be drunk before the wine truly enters its prime.
