Product Overview

Deep, attractive ruby red colour. Elegantly fruity nose, with marked scents of wild red berries foregrounding nuances of mixed spices. The palate, too, shows excellent fruit supported by judicious tannins. Lengthy finish.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 92
The dark ruby-colored 1997 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia (3,000 cases) is aged two years in large wood as well as small barriques. With its chewy, powerful, meaty aromas, this wine begs to be drunk with steak. Notes of licorice, smoke, spice box, cedar, and black cherry jam can be found in this ripe, concentrated, muscular wine. Lay this one away for 2-3 years, and consume it over the following 17-18 years.-Robert Parker

Fabulous Chianti Classico. Wonderful aromas of crushed blackberries and cherries. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Best from 2001 through 2004. 3,000 cases made. –JS
