Description

WHO?

Selvapiana is a classic Tuscan fattoria located in the Chianti Rufina zone east of Florence. It was originally a summer residence for the Florentine bishops. Since 1957 it has been run by Francesco Giuntini Antinori and he has worked to restore the reputation of Chianti Rufina. Rufina’s soil of galestro mixed with limestone and clay combined with its proximity to the Apennines provide a special microclimate for late ripening fruit with high acidity. The vineyard are cultivated organically.

WHERE?

The Rufina zone is the smallest of all in Chianti (about 600 hectares of vineyard) but also one of the most special. The Sangiovese grapes were grown in the Bucerchiale, single vineyard on the ancient Selvapiana estate. The oldest part of the vineyard was planted in 1968. The vineyard faces south/south-west and is situated at 150-200 metres above sea level. The soil is predominantly clay and limestone.

WHY?

It’s the smallest Chianti sub-region, and Selvapiana’s Bucerchiale comes from one 12.5 hectare vineyard which consistently produces their top Sangiovese grapes, always as riserva. There’s no rush to make this wine, allowing a slow, natural fermentation process. It is made only made in the best vintages. Oak’s there, but plays a supporting role, bringing out the mesmerising quality of the Sangiovese.
