Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti Rufina 2021

Tuscany, ItalyRufina is the smallest appellation in Chianti, extending across 750 hectares. This is 95% sangiovese, joined with tips of canaiolo, colorino, and malvasia nera from well-drained, dry and stony north and north-west facing vineyards. These 15-40 year old vines grow in medium density clay and limestone at 200-300m. Fermentation and maceration occurs in stainless over 25 days with native yeast, before aging in 25hL French casks for 12 months. Bright and lifted cherry, ripe raspberry is kissed with wild orange, and dosed liberally with flake salts. Tannins are fine and sticky, hugging this medium red to a gently spiced finish. A subtle and pretty Rufina, ready to enjoy now with fragrant mushroom dishes.Tasted: 01 June 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
