The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Colonia (Sangiovese) is huge. Dark red cherries, flowers, spices, leather and tobacco flow effortlessly from this big, large-scaled wine. The French oak is quite noticeable in the Colonia, separating it from the rest of the Felsina lineup. A huge, opulent finish laced with tar, smoke and licorice rounds out this stylish, expressive Riserva. Colonia is 100% Sangiovese from the highest part of the Rancia vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
93+ points from Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Winery Notes: Intense ruby red color. Spicy aromas with earthy, mineral, tobacco and pleasant wild berry notes. On the palate, it has intense tannins needed for ageing the high concentration of the regional components typical to Fèlsina and Poggio a Rancia.
