2005 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva "Rancia"
Review Date: 05-04-2009
Aromas of dark red fruit, sandalwood, and perfumed, toasted oak flow from this dark ruby 100% Sangiovese, which is aged 18 months in small and medium oak barrels. This is a wine of impressive depth and fullness on the palate with black raspberry, grilled meat, and hints of mocha and dark chocolate. Amazingly long, sweet finish of framboise and cedar with gripping, ripe tannins. Superb!

2004 Rocca di Montegrossi "San Marcellino" Chianti Classico
Review Date: 04-28-2009
The 2004 Vigneto San Marcellino is 100% Sangiovese, matured 18 months in Allier oak. Dark ruby in color it displays purity of dark red berry fruit with scents of cigar box and smoke. The palate is soft, silky and beautifully balanced offering flavors of black fruit and cocoa that is like sweet chocolate covered cherries. There is good overall acidity and persistence of fruit flavors on the finish. A superb wine.
