Selvapiana Bucerchiale Riserva 2016 among Karen MacNeil’s “Wine to Know”

Karen MacNeil presented Selvapiana Bucerchiale Chianti Rufina Riserva 2016 as “Wine to Know” in her newsletter for subscribers to WineSpeed and on her website. Karen tasted and revisited her favorite Chianti wines this spring while writing the third edition of the Wine Bible   Selvapiana “Vigneto Bucerchiale” Chianti Rufina Riserva 2016 (Tuscany, Italy) Selvapiana makes a terrific basic Chianti, but the estate’s flagship wine from its top vineyard (Bucerchiale) is a  wine you definitely should not miss. A really good sangiovese has the inexplicable ability to seem both taut and muscular, lean and rich, at the same time. That’s certainly true here; this wine is 100% sangiovese. But what makes Selvapiania’s “Bucerchiale” extra fascinating is its hint of delicious saltiness and noble bitterness. The merest hint of salty and bitter flavors amplify the flavors around them, so when you have this wine with a great pasta, it’s heavenly. Plus there are also waves of rose, red fruit, and mineraly/chalky notes. Selvapiana has been making wine for almost 200 years in Chianti Rufina (Rufina is the smallest subzone in the Chianti area). 94 points KM   Here the link to the website: https://winespeed.com/wine/selvapiana-4/


The 2018 Selvapiana Chianti Rufina featured by Karen MacNeil as a Wine to Know on Winespeed

Karen MacNeil, author of the Wine Bible, featured the 2018 Selvapiana Chianti Rufina as a Wine to Know on her Winespeed platform. I love the delicious notes of red fruit, roses, cinnamon, and something beautifully salty. This is the sort of traditional Chianti that can transport one right back to a trattoria in Tuscany twenty years ago. Read more on WineSpeed: https://winespeed.com/wine/selvapiana-2/
