The 2000 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is impressive. It comes across as a larger scaled version of the 1995 with all of the elements beautifully in place and aging in pure harmony. Hints of spices licorice and tobacco... The 2000 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is impressive. It comes across as a larger scaled version of the 1995 with all of the elements beautifully in place and aging in pure harmony. Hints of spices licorice and tobacco are layered into the finish. Giuseppe Mazzocolin describes 2000 as a medium quality vintage with more rain than 1999. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. I will never forget this once in a lifetime tasting of Felsina's flagship Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia. What started out as a casual survey of a few older vintages turned into a complete vertical as proprietor Giuseppe Mazzocolin and long-time oenologist Franco Bernabei surprised me with bottle after bottle of fabulous Rancias going back to the inaugural 1983...The single biggest takeaway from this tasting is the amazing consistency of the wines across all vintages. Considering its modest price Rancia remains one the most fairly priced cellar worthy wines in the world. -Antonio Galloni
