"Aromas of forest fruit and fresh mushroom follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a mahogany, berry and bitter chocolate aftertaste. Best after 2009. 2,500 cases made." (WS)

"The single-vineyard 2006 Chianti Rufina Vigneto Bucerchiale exhibits an attractive combination of ripe, generous fruit wedded to a firm sense of structure that should allow the wine to age gracefully for years. Sweet scents of tobacco, earthiness, leather, licorice and spices add complexity on the powerful close. At the moment, the 2006 Vigneto Bucerchiale remains unyielding but full of promise. The wine continued to improve with air. This is a terrific effort from Selvapiana. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021. " (WA)

"($30; 100% sangiovese, 14.5% alcohol) Bright red. Pure, floral aromas of strawberry and red cherry are lifted by hints of ripe citrus, tobacco and sweet spices. Vibrant and pure on entry, with impressive mid-palate breadth and lovely flavors of redcurrant, red cherry, tobacco and plum jam. This offers a rare combination of elegance and power, thanks to ripe acidity and sweet tannins. Finishes sweet and long, with silky tannins. Excellent. Dalla Terra Napa CA)" (IWC)
