This is a vintage of overt sumptuous fruit and pure sexiness. Despite its richness the 2007 never loses its sense of structure but in this vintage the tannins are nearly buried by the huge fruit. Today the 2007 comes across as a hypothetical blend of the 2004 and 2006 with the finesse of the former and the size of the latter. Not a bad combination to put it mildly. In the glass the wine is alive vibrant and totally captivating. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037. 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

Fresh red cherry bay leaf and underbrush aromas are complemented by a strong mineral nuance. Starts silky then turns minerally brisk and firm in the middle showing a penetrating quality to the red cherry ripe plum and delicate herbal flavors. Finishes seamless and very long but I found this to be a somewhat more backward imploded example of Rancia than usual.

Racy and rich with chewy tannins that are polished and attractive. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a clean finish. Offers lots of richness. Drink now. 3750 cases made.
