AG 95+ WA 95 WE 93 WS 91 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is cool, inward and reserved at this stage. Much less expressive than it was from barrel, today the 2010 appears to be in a closed phase. There is so much tension in the glass, though, and I can hardly wait to see where the 2010 goes over the coming years. A burst of mineral and floral infused fruit lingers on the polished, nuanced finish. Today, the 2010 seems to bring together the finesse of 2004 with the structure and power of the 2010. A pretty magical combination, if you ask me.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2010 Chianti Classico Reserva Rancia is chiseled and focused. It offers a full spectrum of Sangiovese characteristics with balsamic herb and medicinal tones followed by crushed stone and delicate clove or nutmeg. Rancia is equally impressive in the mouth with firm structure and enduring fruit flavors. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
According to Wine Enthusiast - This wine from one of Chianti Classico’s leading producers is still young but already stunning. It’s loaded with blue flower, black cherry, black pepper, leather and balsamic sensations alongside a solid tannic back bone. Elegant and reserved, it still needs time to develop fully. Drink 2015–2025.
According to Wine Spectator - This long version is packed with sweet cherry, mulberry and spice flavors and backed by dense, muscular tannins. Begs for time and food. Best from 2015 through 2025. 100% Sangioveses. Rated 90+
