94 points "The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia bursts onto the palate in a big, brooding expression of Sangiovese. Muscular and dense to the core, the 2007 powers all the way through to the long finish. Hints of smoke, tar, leather and scorched earth emerge over time. In a vintage where so many wines are open, the Rancia comes across as quite stubborn and in need of at least five more years in bottle. That said, it is a standout, not to mention one of the greatest values in fine, age-worthy wine. In a second tasting the 2007 Rancia came across as decidedly more elegant and restrained in style so it will be interesting to see where this ultimately settles within the context of recent vintages. Today I don’t think the 2007 has the elegance of the 2004 nor the power and ageworthiness of the 2006, but we will see. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. Wine Spectator 91 Pts. - Racy and rich, with chewy tannins that are polished and attractive. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a clean finish. Offers lots of richness. " Best 2015-2027

"Unreal. soft w/ nose of cherry, rasberry & currants(?), earth, mushrooms, clove & lovely herb w/o being too green. Maybe a touch of mint. Layered & lovely. soft & complex, perfectly balanced, w/ nice acidity & dry chewy soft tannins and an excellent :30 seductive finish. "
