Winemaker's Notes

This 100% Sangiovese from the Bucerchiale Vineyard (an older plot of vineyard planted in original Sangioves clones)is simply a superb wine, with a solid structure and fine tannins. A wine made for long aging as indicated by the bottles in Selvapiana's cellars dating back to 1947 and 48.

"Intense aromas of ripe fruit, flowers and hints of wood. Full-bodied, with rich, silky tannins and a long, long finish. A tight and well-structured red for aging. Best after 2004."
Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2002
