External Reviews for Fattoria di Basciano Chianti Rufina
Smoky and intensely fruity, with a light grilled meat undertone. Full-bodied and silky. Drink now.
The "Fattoria di Basciano" farm is owned by the Masi family. Basciano is located on a hill to the right of the river Sieve in Tuscany. Paolo Masi is everything we look for in a modern Tuscan winemaker: ambitious, foward-looking and innovative but also hugely passionate about the traditions of his region. His Chianti Rufinas are among the best of their type, far better than most of the Classicos we have come across, whilst the Super Tuscan Il Corto is a textbook marriage of the local Sangiovese and the international Cabernet Sauvignon at an affordable price. This Chianti Rufina is deep and dark in appearance and nose is full of juicy, fresh, ripe black cherries overlaid with vanilla and herbs. On the palate there is a wonderful concentration and balance while the finish is ripe and long with firm, fine tannins.
