Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Robust and refined! The Fattoria Di Felsina Rancia is a gorgeous expression of Chianti Classico. Pouring with deep garnet hue, this Italian Sangiovese shows prominent aromas of cherry, spice, and dried sage and oregano. The palate is showing clean concentrated flavours of cherry, cranberry, dates, mocha and spice. This wine is rich, full-bodied, and velvety smooth. Moderate acidity and ripe tannins balances nicely with deep fruit concentration and a long smooth finish. Tasted Oct 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
