Top 10 wines in the US press

1st August, 2013 by Andy Young

2010 Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti Rufina

2010 Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti RufinaThe LA Times‘ wine writer, Irene Virbila,  The Chianti region is large, and while the wines from the Classico region are the best known, for price and quality, look to the lesser-known Chianti Rufina, a small area in the northeastern corner of Chianti proper. Selvapiana is one of the best estates in Rufina, turning out first-rate Sangiovese-based reds. I’ve been buying its Chianti for years, keeping it on hand for pasta nights and grilled skirt steak or chops. A deep ruby in colour, the 2010 Selvapiana tastes of bright cherries and plums, but a touch of earth gives it some weight. A great everyday Chianti.
