    (Felsina Berardenga Rancia Chianti Classico Riserva) The first bottle was completely dead - perhaps low-level cork taint? The second was fortunately much better. The colour is quite dark, but showing some mature tones. The nose has a subtle and harmonious elegance, with cherries rubbed over quiet notes of spiced sandalwood. A gentle start on the palate, showing pretty firm acidity through the middle, with a seam of smoky meat. The structure is rather extreme, that acidity I have already mentioned plus a rather soft, slightly unfocused texture. It lacks precision, definition - there is, however, something very fine about it, a supple, seamless style which is extremely appealing. There's some grip at the finish though, and it has considerable length. Although I'm not quite so enamoured or confident as I was at my last tasting this wine still has more to offer I think, and if it firms up it could be superb.

    (Felsina Berardenga Rancia Chianti Classico Riserva) Lovely, deep colour. On the nose, smoked, macerated black cherries, black olives, hints of savoury sun-dried tomatoes. Rich palate, displaying impeccable balance. Packed with mineral, cherry, tomato and bacon flavour, still showing just a little oak, although this is negligible. Lovely extract, very pure overall, with some elegance coming through. Emerging complexity here. Grippy finish and great length. This is marvellous, and has such potential.
