Chianti Rufina DOCG Selvapiana Vendemmia
On an afternoon in late June we finally had the pleasure of hosting 15 young future sommeliers accompanied by the delegate AIS (Italian Sommelier Association) Fabio Ceccarelli for an educational tasting, the first after these months of lockdown. Starting with the usual tour of the vineyards, after a particular stop in Bucerchiale, we visited the new winemaking cellar and then we immersed in the ancient cellars of Selvapiana dedicated to aging in large barrels and the conservation of historical vintages. Back in the tasting room we presented the traditional tasting route starting with Sangiovese based wines Chianti Rufina DOCG Selvapiana Vendemmia 2018, Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG Vigneto Bucerchiale 2016, Chianti Rufina DOCG Vigneto Erchi 2016 and then continue with Pomino Rosso DOC 2015 and Fornace IGT Toscana 2015, which adds the pleasantness of Cabernet and Merlot to Sangiovese. An excellent opportunity to understand the various variations of Sangiovese, spaced and safe but united by the passion for good wine.
