Made from 100% single-vineyard Sangiovese from old vines - some planted in 1968 - on the Bucerchiale parcel.
Intense ruby red in color, it offers suave flavors of cherry, red currants and violets, nicely integrated with elegant notes of tobacco, leather and wood. Pure, full-bodied and fleshy, with a solid structure and superfine tannins. The balanced acidity, typical of the wines of Chianti, gives substantial consistency to the juicy texture.
A wine made for long aging, some of the bottles in Selvapiana's cellars date back to 1947. Recommended with rich meat dishes and barbecue.
