Selvapiana, 2013 Selvapiana 'Bucerchiale' Chianti Rufina Riserva

"The 2013 Chianti Rufina Riserva Bucerchiale is a fantastic interpretation with seamless balance and carefully measured intensity. The wine opens to bright cherry and cassis aromas that are wrapped within a delicate veil of balsam or Mediterranean herb. The mouthfeel is silky and long with a good amount of power to move it smoothly over the palate. Selvapiana shows excellent results in this vintage."

"A host of dark red cherry, iron, plum, smoke, licorice and dark spice infuse the 2013 Chianti Rùfina Vigneto Bucerchiale. Pliant and dense, with tightly wound tannins, the 2013 is going to need at least a few years to unwind. There is plenty to look forward to for those who can wait. Despite its mid-weight structure, the 2013 packs quite a punch to match its decidedly virile personality."
