2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia, Felsina
A upfront, deep and lush nose with notes of ripe black cherries, fresh rosemary, leather, freshly baked dark bread, leather and a hint of a blueberry smoothie. Very fine. Open, with a fine laid back warmth and a great depth.
The taste is tight yet refined with notes of ripe cherries, licorice, tapenade and some dark chocolate elements. A slender structure with a fine warmth and juicy tannins. Lovely now and lovely the coming 8+ years.
