    January 15, 2016 - From magnum. Juicy cherry with dark chocolate leather sandalwood and floral notes. Medium finish and nice sour red berry notes, great acidity, fresh and crisp, the way a Chianti should be.

    November 29, 2015 - bottle may have been flawed, there was some seepage. but i couldn't detect any major flaws. not bad but still very tannic.

    September 12, 2014 - Had my last bottle with home-made pizza tonight. Just a great every-night drinker. Maybe doesn't have the complexity for a 90 pointer, but it's just so darn good that it's hard not to like it. At its peak and won't get any better, so drink up in the next few years.

    January 1, 2014 - Tasty little Chianti Rufina that time in the bottle helped develop more roundness and depth. Nice dusty, dark red fruit that got more interesting and complex with time in the glass. Went well with Chicken in red sauce with garlic, capers. olives, roasted red peppers and red spicy goathorn peppers.

    (Selvapiana Chianti Rufina) This has more feral and furry notes on the nose. Nicely textured on the palate, certainly well defined, rather furry fruit, with overall a rather lean style. Prominent structure, and a decent drinking style, although I think I prefer the Cerro del Masso.
