What can you say about all that Felsina has accomplished in Chianti? In the 17 published editions of Gambero Rosso, Felsina has won the coveted Tre Bicchieri award a crazy 17 times! They have always been a favorite of Robert Parker, Jr. and the Wine Advocate and now the wines have won over James Suckling and Antonio Galloni of Vinous as well. The consistent quality, and the range between the regular baseline Chianti Classico and the flagship, full-throtled Riserva Rancia. These wines represent some of the classiest expression of Sangiovese and Chianti and remain the standard in Tuscany.
Their 2018 Rancia Riserva is still an infant, but it promises to be something extremely special. It ranked as the 3rd highest Chianti Riserva of the 2018 vintage according to Vinous, outpointing and outshining some of the most sought after bottles that go for prices two and three times what today’s wine goes for. This is set to arrive in early November, and quantities are outrageously small. I have just 30 1.5 Liter magnums to go around. Don’t wait if you’re looking to cash in on something truly special. This is a collector’s dream!

The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is an absolutely stunning wine. The archetype of Rancia in the past has been of a big, potent Chianti Classico but in 2018, Rancia is a wine of mind-blowing elegance and finesse. Silky, perfumed and indescribably finessed, the 2018 dazzles from start to finish. It’s a magical wine in every way.
