Selvapiana chiantirufina bucerschiale

Chianti Rufina Riserva, "Bucerchiale" 2010

Selvapiana

The most important wine of this estate. Produced only in the very best vintages. Made from 100% single-vineyard Sangiovese from old vines, many dating back to 1968, on the Bucerchiale vineyard. Long maceration on the skins for 20-25 days with daily pump-overs provides superb flavor extraction and color concentration. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is matured in barriques and medium-sized oak casks for 15 months and then blended together in steel tanks before bottling, then refined in bottle for an additional ten months before release.

Reviews

  • "91+ points. Bright red. Captivating perfume of raspberry, red cherry, almond paste, graphite, licorice and meat. At once dense and precise, displaying superb fruit concentration and considerable power. Finishes rich and long, with big, ripe, chewy tannins and a strawberry syrup nuance." (International Wine Cellar)
