• The real-deal, mighty 10 buck Chianti returns & 2010 is going to be quite an important vintage for Tuscany
• Full of flavor and one that we'd personally award 300 Bicchieri to if we could
• Undoubtedly the finest Chianti value we work with overall
Savory, classy and careening with character. Aromas bursting with raspberry, sage and underlying briar, a touch of mineral and pepper lead into a succulent, generous texture that conveys Tuscan warmth. The finish is suave, velvety and very high-toned. 90% Sangiovese, 10% Canniolo and a combination of fruit from Chianti Classico and Chianti Fiorentini - for the money and category, little can compare!! Drink now and often with anything ranging from grilled pork to red sauce pasta dishes loaded with sausages.
2006 FATTORIA DI FELSINA CHIANTI CLASSICO
RISERVA "VIGNA RANCIA"
$46.99 BTL./$563.88 CASE
95 POINTS – THE WINE ADVOCATE
From one of the finest value Chianti wines we move to one of the finest Chianti Classico Riserva wines..period! Fattoria di Felsina, led by Giuseppe Mazzocolin and Franco Bernebei is one of the greatest and most influential Tuscan properties. The style here is one of power due to prime plots in Castelnuovo Berardenga. 100% Sangiovese is the norm and they did this even when it wasn't legal to do this!! The Rancia vineyard produces one of the best wines in all Chianti Classico! In fact, if we had to choose a "Desert Island Chianti", this would be the selection.
Incredible presence of authority here, this 100% Sangiovese is all about the magnificent and pristine site just outside of the village of Castelnuovo Berardenga. Deep and dark black cherry and plum fruit are hallmarks of this wine. Loads of Tuscan scents like savory violet, sage and toffee ride shotgun on this impressively complex number. In the mouth, this is incredibly opulent and ripe with fruit that buries the tannin, although the grip and structure for aging is very noticeable. The true highlight of this wine is its aftertaste which is graceful, complex and if we had a stopwatch, it would make a couple of rotations! This awesome specimen has appeal now due to the saturation of fruit, but it will be at its ultimate best from 2014 through 2026. Also, 95 POINTS FROM ROBERT PARKER'S THE WINE ADVOCATE…Madonn'!!!
