Probably not a long ager, the '08 Rancia hits a sweet-spot between youthful and mature. Just as the previous bottle two years ago, this one shows great complexity and nuance, with fairly understated oak. Highly drinkable and appreciated around the table.
Excellent and drinking very well after 8 hours slow O and a two hour decant. Dark red, classic nose and palate, good nose and clean finish. Does not have the depth and panache of vintages like 06, 07, 10, but is open for business now and works really well with food.
