Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(AG=93+) The 2005 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia much more closed than it was when I last tasted it a few years ago. Notoriously slow to evolve, today the 2005 shows the broad, powerful side of its personality, along with remarkable intensity for a wine of its age and vintage. Black cherries, plums, smoke, licorice and tobacco shape the powerful, tannic finish. The 2005 still hasn't developed tertiary notes and appears to be going through an especially stubborn phase. My most rewarding experiences with Rancia have usually come around age 20, which may very well be when the 2005 decides to show us all it has. (WS=91) 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. Drink now. 3,000 cases made
