Made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes harvested from the 12.5-hectares Bucerchiale vineyard, this wine has great intensity on the nose and a powerful, fruit packed palate, unusual for the Chianti Rufina zone which is usually characterised by its leaner, elegant wines. It boasts ripe raspberry and spicy cherry fruit, with a touch of herbs and violets on the palate, robust tannins and the long, fine finish that is the hallmark of Selvapiana wines.

The Domaine
Federico Giuntini Masseti, who was born on the estate, now runs it and makes the wines with consultant Franco Bernabei. The estate covers 245 hectares of which 54 hectares is vineyard and the rest is olive groves and woods. Although Rufina is the smallest of the Chianti zones, it is also one of the most special, with a cool breeze blowing down the Sieve Valley which gives the best wines a finesse that few in Chianti Classico can match.

Food Pairing
Beef, duck, lamb and roast chicken
