Dekantert. Lite bunnfall. Litt lukket umiddelbart, mer åpner seg raskt opp.
Middels intens. Dyp, mørk og klar duft av sursøte kirsebær dominerer først aromabildet, men etterhvert dukker også kaffe, eukalyptus og et hint av eikefat opp.
God konsentrasjon. I munnen er det først og fremst de sursøte kirsebærene som er mest framtredende. Svært syrefrisk, og oppleves som overraskende frisk tatt i betraktning at duften i hovedsak er dyp og mørk. Avslutter med et skikkelig tanninbitt som likevel er godt integrert. En flott match til hjemmelagd italiensk pizza.
Just entering its drinking window, with richness and intensity, showing floral perfume at this stage, cedar, ripe cherries, with distinct green olives, leather and smoked notes. Medium full, high acidity, huge tanins, it is quite savory and in a mature stage, but may improve palate depth in a couple of years. Really good grip and mouth fillment. For now we can enjoy its gorgeus tuscan bouquet and strong flavors. 92-93
Two hour decant, The main thing I noticed about this wine is that it is tart and tannic and needs more time in the cellar to integrate its components more fully, give this at least two or three years more time before popping one open. It does have the basic structure to turn into a very fine chianti.

(Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Riserva Rància) This is 100% Sangiovese from the Rància vineyard, and it has seen out between 18 and 22 months in oak. The fruit has a polished feel aromatically, with an overlay of oak, showing a creamy, plum-liqueur character tinged with black olive. It still seems very youthful and primary, sweet and ripe, but it certainly holds lots of promise I think. The palate is supple and yet substantial, polished, with plenty of grippy, powerful tannins. There is some firm acidity which dominates here and through in to the finish, where the tannins show a smoothly textured quality. A wine with really great potential I think.
