Wine Description

Selvapiana is owned by Francesco Giuntini, descendant of the original owner, Michele Giuntini who bought the estate in 1827. His adopted son, Federico Masetti-Giuntini now runs the estate and makes the wines with consultant Franco Bernabei. Federico is the son of the ‘fattore’ (estate manager) who worked with the Giuntini family all his life. Federico was born on the estate, as was his sister Silvia, who is also involved in running the business. The estate covers 245 hectares of mixed vineyard and olive groves. The wine has a lovely perfume of cherries and spiced plums that gives way to a read more...ripe, supple yet elegant fruit on the palate. The acid is nicely moderated, serving to corset the fruit and lift the perfumes on the finish. (hide)
