    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brilliant, rich ruby red. Spicy nose with floral notes and wild berry nuances. Spice continues in the mouth, nicely complemented by a dense, soft fabric of youthful tannins; excellent structure and superb overall character.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a beautifully fresh, perfumed version of this wine. It reveals a lovely core of ripe red fruit intermingled with sweet toasted oak and a winsome, attractive personality. Although the 2005 shows outstanding balance, clarity and finesse for the vintage, it remains relatively small-scaled Rancia. Still, its notable freshness should allow it to age gracefully for a decade or so. I would purchase the 2005 to drink over the mid-term, while waiting for the superlative 2004 to come around. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

    The Wine Advocate

    Exhibits pleasant fresh blackberry, citrus and cedar character on a medium body, with a clean fruit and mineral finish. Clean and tasty, with a long, succulently fruity aftertaste. Subtle and delicious.
