TN: 2009 Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti Rùfina Riserva Bucerchiale

  • 2009 Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti Rùfina Riserva Bucerchiale - Italy, Tuscany, Chianti, Chianti Rùfina (7/7/2017)
    On first pour, it’s all about the soil/earth notes, dusty, mushrooms and forest. It’s not until this has had about 15 minutes in the glass that the fruit begins to emerge - and once it does, it really doesn’t stop. This continues to add weight and complexity every five minutes. As it does, it’s always keeping its elegant composure. This bottle (there’s some variation, now and over the years) was an education in elegance and poise all the while subtly managing a medium>medium+ body. The finish is medium>long, the tannins are (mostly) resolved, and very fine. This is such a lovely display of place and grape - red fruited, mysterious at times, an expensive pair of shoes at other times. Very happy to have more, but I will still be on the look out for another 6 or more that I plan to enjoy over the coming decade. This is a book that I’m looking forward to following until the final chapter. highly recommended
