Item#: 73160

VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2020
The 2018 Morellino di Scansano packs a serious punch. Super-ripe black cherry, chocolate, cloves, menthol, licorice and leather are all amped up here. Flamboyant and full-throttle to the core, the just-bottled 2018 is not subtle, but it sure packs tons of flavor.

Where It's From

Region / Tuscany

View more wines from Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Country / Italy

View more wines from Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.

Truffles, dried cherries, earth, dried flowers and tomato leaves on the nose. Rich and flavorful, yet fresh, with excellent balance and sleek, integrated tannins. From organically grown grapes. Drink from 2024. (James Suckling)

Shows generous black cherry and blackberry fruit, along with distinctive notes of tamarind, gingerbread and licorice. Reveals more breadth and richness than its peers, with a long, firm chocolate- and baking spice–inflected finish. The aromas alone are worth the price of admission. Best from 2025 through 2039. 2,000 cases made, 850 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Dried flowers, lemon zest, cherries, plums, walnuts and blueberries on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with a vibrant, energetic and fresh core of berry fruit, with tightly-knit tannins and bright acidity. Tangy finish. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

Floral nose with fresh blackberries and flowers. Some dry earth, too. Medium- to full-bodied with plenty of black-fruit flavor and a lightly firm tannin structure. Long finish. Nicely done. Give it a year to come more together. Try from 2024. (James Suckling)

A dark, brooding 2018, with accents of smoke, vanilla, iron and tar surrounding a core of cherry and plum flavors. Reveals balsamic elements of eucalyptus and wild herbs on the lingering finish. On the austere side now, with a core of fruit and mineral. Best from 2025 through 2043. 150 cases made, 150 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino Sugarille keeps me coming back to the glass again and again to take in its spicy yet also wonderfully lifted bouquet, as shavings of cedar and pine evolve to reveal mentholated herbs, flinty stone and dried black cherries. This is deeply textural, soothing with its combination of ripe red fruits and juicy acidity, as sweet spices and mint nuances resonate toward the close. The Sugarille doesn’t miss a beat, tapering off with impeccable balance and regal structure, while allowing remnants of ripe wild berries and plum to linger on and on. The Gaja family has really outdone themselves in this idiosyncratic vintage. (Eric Guido)

The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is an absolutely stunning wine. The archetype of Rancia in the past has been of a big, potent Chianti Classico but in 2018, Rancia is a wine of mind-blowing elegance and finesse. Silky, perfumed and indescribably finessed, the 2018 dazzles from start to finish. It’s a magical wine in every way.
RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 7th Oct 2021
The 2018 is an unusual vintage that shows an especially austere character. Off the bat, it must be said that the Fèlsina 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia would certainly benefit from more cellar time and a long drinking window. The Rancia is elegant and streamlined with a medium-bodied style that breaks from some of the more concentrated vintages we’ve seen in the past. The bouquet reveals a lot of dark or black character with blackcurrant, tar, resin, iron ore and a dusty hint of dry graham cracker (which reminds us of the vintage heat). Structurally, the wine offers a solid and firm footing, but it would benefit from further evolution.

This is really subtle and complex with cherry, herb, floral and sage aromas that follow through to a full body with firm, fine tannins that give form and energy to the wine. Racy and very fine. Drink or hold.

There is a green, leafy edge along with vanilla aromas surrounding the black cherry and resinous oak flavors on the palate in this sinewy red. Finishes on the chewy side, with austere tannins. Needs time. Best from 2024 through 2035. 4,000 cases made. (Bruce Sanderson)
