Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti Rufina
This was a real standout at a big Italian tasting in May. I stocked this many years ago, but it became quite rustic so we dropped it. However this new 2007 is delicious, it's drinkable now but will also age well. Ripe Sangiovese fruit on the nose, dense cherry and dried herb. It's a bright style with lovely cherry fruit, spice, dried herbs and ripe tannins. Young, pure and vibrant and a delicious expression of Sangiovese. It's a real winner for sure and a great value.
