Description

The Rufina zone is the smallest of all in Chianti (about 1,000 hectares of vineyard) but also one of the most special. The cool breeze that blows down the Sieve Valley gives the best wines a finesse and definition that few in Chianti Classico can match. And there is no better producer in Rufina than Selvapiana, which has been in the family of Francesco Giuntini since 1827.The grapes are grown in a two-hectare vineyard situated in Chianti Rufina DOCG, north east of Florence, Tuscany. The vineyard faces north-east and is situated 200 metres above sea level. The vines are approximately 15-years-old and are planted at a density of 3,200 per hectare.
Tasting: Deep amber in colour with perfumes of dried fruits on the nose. This wine is intense, rich and luscious. The sweetness is balanced by good acidity and concentration, ensuring a long, fresh finish.
