Deep colour, almost opaque, with little turn. Beryy and wood on nose. Lots of everything on the palate-acidity, tannin, fruit.
It shows elements of both a cold year in its mid-weight structure and a warmer vintage in its radiant fruit, a combination that represents an attractive stylistic middle ground. I very much like the sense of energy and intensity here. Bright acidity and youthful tannins frame the supple fruit... the 2009 is yet another terrific Rancia from Felsina.
