Winemaker's Notes:

Deep and dark in appearance, the nose is full of juicy, fresh, ripe black cherries overlaid with vanilla and herbs. On the palate there is wonderful concentration and balance while the finish is ripe and long with firm, fine tannins.
My Notes:

About Fattoria di Basciano:

Located in the town of Rufina, Fattoria di Basciano is the estate owned by the Masi family since the beginning of 1900. It is located in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area, on the top of a hill overlooking the Argomenna Valley on one side, and the right bank of the Sieve river on the other. In the last fifteen years the estate has been engaged in a program of research and experimentation in the vineyards to reach even higher quality levels. By consistently investing, planting new vineyards, and building a new winery for the vinification and barrel ageing, Basciano continues to evolve and reach new heights.
