Felsina Berardenga Rancia, Chianti Classico Reserva DOCG 2016

  • View


The weather was turning colder, I was exhausted from the week and I just wanted a plate of spaghetti with Betty’s meat sauce for dinner.  Nothing fancy.  Something I could let simmer on the stove for a few hours while I watched a movie and piddled around the house.  Still, a Friday night warranted something special.  I bought this bottle of Chianti at Dorginac’s and although it was not cheap, it didn’t break the bank.  It was a beautiful garnet color and silky and tasted like a mixed berry pie.  At least, that’s what I thought.  Reviewer Antonio Galloni said: “Silky, gracious and inviting, the 2016 starts off gradually and then builds, gaining volume and explosiveness with air.”  Wow.  It did get better below the shoulder but I thought I was just getting a little tight.  This was a great wine, actually.  I’m going back to Dorgie’s tomorrow to pick up a few more bottles.
