Selvapiana is the leading producer in Chianti Rùfina, a subzone of Chianti where some of the region's best value wines can be found. The 2018 is bright ruby red in colour, this wine has perfumes of ripe blackberry, red cherry and a touch of spice on the nose. On the palate, it is ripe and juicy but still fine and elegant in the Selvapiana style, with a tight structure and lifted, floral finish with refreshing acidity.
"My, my, this Chianti is good. From Rufina, the most famous of the Chianti zones, it is a dazzling organic Sangiovese, finished off partly in French oak barrels. What you get is a smoky, sensual, rose and violet pot-pourri of a wine."
