Selvapiana Chianti Bucerchiale 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 100% singlevineyard Sangiovese from old vines, many dating to 1968, on the Bucerchiale vineyard. Long maceration on the skins for 20 to 25 days with daily pump-overs provides superb flavor extraction and color concentration. After malolactic fermentation the wine is matured in barriques and medium-sized oak casks for 15 months and then blended together in steel tanks before bottling, then refined in bottle for an additional ten months before release.

Spicy and smoky on the nose with fine floral, mineral soil and tomato leaf aromas adding detail to the soft red raspberry fruit. Air really brings out an intense floral aroma here- irises galore. This is smooth as silk but a bit too soft on entry, dropping away to leave a bit of a void on the mid-palate. The wine really fills the mouth but there is some tension lacking. Lovely flavors of dark strawberry and jammy black cherry fruit topped with leather, bitter chocolate and light dried herb notes. The finish is a touch short and soft. This is very nice but lacks some of the tension of better vintages. Not to say this is soft as there’s a fine bed of tannin anchoring the fruit, just that it lacks some liveliness and precision. 89pts

Aromas of honeysuckle and blackberry giving way to dark fruits, espresso and cocoa nibs on the palate. Very expressive and flavorful.
