Winery built where once stood watch tower in Medieval times

The Fattoria Selvapiana Winery is based in an exceptional location that has an amazing variety of terroir in the Chianti region. Started in 1826, this winery extends over 250 hectares of which 58 are planted with vines, 36 olive gardens, and 140 wood, in the municipalities of Rufina, Pontassieve, and Pelago. The hills where the Rufina vineyards are located lie on the foothill of the Apennines, the chains of mountains that divide Tuscany from Emilia Romagna.

Fifth Generation of Guitini Family

Francesco Giuntini, the present owner and fifth generation to run the winery has always believed in the value of the Rufina appellation. Wilful passion and belief have worked to increase the prestige of the area. He has been among the first Tuscan producer to make the Riserva wine only from Sangiovese grapes and to produce the flagship wine of Selvapiana from a single vineyard, Bucerchiale: the first vintage of the Chianti Rufina Riserva Vigneto Bucerchiale is 1979. Fattoria Selvapiana has always aimed to become better every day and never looked back ever since. This characteristic in the company helped them to gain a spot in the top 100 of the Wine Spectator for three times. Most of their wines easily get 94-96 points reflecting their art of making wine and quality vineyards and terroir.

Closeness to Mountains

The closeness of the mountains with vineyards strongly influences the microclimate of the area with cooler summer and great excursion of temperature between day and night. Consequently, the grapes ripen slowly throughout the summer season and reach a nice balance of all the aromatic compounds. The wines have fresh acidity, great finesse and elegance, silky tannins, and a long aftertaste.
