One of our all time very favorite Chianti Classico Reservas from one of the most iconic producers in the Castelnuovo Berardenga in Tuscany. We have tasted many vintages of this wine and it is always a special experience. The 2018 Rancia is with out a doubt one of the greatest vintages produced in the last 30 years! This is a rare opportunity to purchase a decades long cellar worthy wine at a serious discount. Do not miss this opportunity.
The Rancia vineyard takes its name from the historic Rancia farmhouse, once a Benedictine monastery. Located in Castelnuovo Berardenga at elevations ranging between 400 and 420 metres it has a fine southwest-facing exposure. The more recent plantings utilize genetic material from massal selections gathered from the old Rancia vineyard. The soil is composed of limestone-derived alberese classic to the Castelnuovo Berardenga area and of galestro marl in some areas. First vintage was 1983.

The 2018 Chianti Classico Reserva 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.
