Selvapiana is owned by Francesco Giuntini, descendant of the original owner, Michele Giuntini who bought the estate in 1827. His
adopted son, Federico Masetti-Giuntini now runs the estate and makes the wines with consultant Franco Bernabei. Federico is the son of the ‘fattore’ (estate manager) who worked with the Giuntini family all his life. Federico was born on the estate, as was his sister Silvia, who is also involved in running the business. The estate covers 245 hectares of mixed vineyard and olive groves.
VINEYARDS
The grapes are grown in various vineyards covering 40 hectares on the ancient Selvapiana estate, situated in the Chianti Rufina DOC, north east of Florence, Tuscany. For the most part, the vineyards
face west/north west and are situated at an altitude of 150-200 metres above sea level. The soil is mostly clay and limestone. The
older vines, 31 years old, are planted at a density of 3,200 per hectare and 5,200 per hectare for the younger, 7 year old vines.
The average yield is 35-40 hl per hectare.
VINIFICATION
Fermentation took place partly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and partly in cement, at a temperature of 28 -30°C.Maceration lasted 15 days with daily pumping over. The wine was aged for 12 months - 10% was held in stainless steel, 65% in French oak casks (25-30 hl), and 25% in barriques. The wine was blended in tank and bottled.
TASTING NOTES
The wine has a lovely perfume of cherries and spiced plums that gives way to a ripe, supple yet elegant fruit on the palate. The acid is nicely moderated, serving to corset the fruit and lift the perfumes on the finish.
