James Suckling latest review: SELVAPIANA CHIANTI RUFINA VIGNETO BUCERCHIALE RISERVA 2013 - 94PTS. This is a deliciously decadent Chianti Rufina with aromas and flavors of berries, cherries, wet leaves and coffee. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now or hold. SELVAPIANA CHIANTI RUFINA 2015 - 93PTS. Aromas of cherries, flowers and and fresh herbs following through to a full body. Tight, linear and fresh. Firm and focused. A real Tuscan wine. Drink or hold. SELVAPIANA TOSCANA FORNACE 2012 - 93PTS. Rich and ripe, yet fresh and tannic. This is rather concentrated and more importantly, beautifully balanced. The cocoa-powder character extends right through the wine. A long and elegant finish. Drink or hold. SELVAPIANA POMINO VILLA PETROGNANO 2013 - 90PTS. Dark leafy notes with earthy accents too. There's a spicy thread of dark plums and blackberries, leading to a savory and slightly meaty palate. Some chew through the finish. Drink or hold. Download PDF
