TASTING NOTES

Lifted, peppery berries with some red plums and flowers. Juicy and light- to medium-bodied on the palate with fresh, firm tannins. Drink now.  (James Suckling 90pts)

 Story

This Chianti Rùfina is the pillar of Selvapiana's production, using primarily Sangiovese with small contributions from traditional blending partners Canaiolo, Colorino, and Malvasia Nera. This wine is an excellent example of the finesse and crispness the Rùfina subzone of Chianti delivers.

 FOOD PAIRING

A great wine to serve with a range of foods. We paired this with sausage ravioli in fresh tomato sauce and it was magical. Also fabulous with a traditional pepperoni pizza!
