Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti Rufina 2016

Tuscany, ItalyChianti Rufina extends across 750 hectares, making it the smallest appellation in Chianti. Fortunately, size doesn’t matter when it comes to wine, only place, and this place has it. Selvapiana was established as a watch tower during the Medieval era, and expanded into an estate during the Renaissance. The charm of this wine is its texture, weight, and density of flavour. Like the vintage, this is a beautifully light, refined, flavourful, persistent, and balanced wine full of red fruit and spice that is endlessly slippery on the way down. Pure class, and what I hope for from wine reviews. Best of all, wine this balanced early on in life will age effortlessly for decades. Pizza, spaghetti, steak, chicken it is all possible here, and you will drink all of this bottle.Tasted: 23 August 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 36.99 private wine shop AB 28.99 private wine shops ON 24.95 consignment Producer: Fattoria SelvapianaDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
