Wine Advocate 91 points - The excellent 2011 Chianti Rufina Riserva Vigneto Bucerchiale shows distinctive and attractive tones of cherry cola, balsam herb, tea leaf, chopped mint and blue flower. The aromas are ethereal, pure and show beautiful vertical lift from the glass. Although the nose is decidedly feminine in approach, the mouthfeel feels masculine with lingering flavors of wet earth and leather. The aromas are true to the territory.  (Dec 2014)

Vinous 92 points - Sweet tobacco, cedar, leather, game, smoke and menthol are all pushed forward in Selvapiana’s 2011 Chianti Rufina Riserva Bucerchiale. The warm, early ripening vintage has produced an uncharacteristically approachable, young Riserva that is already quite expressive. I expect the 2011 will only continue to grow with more time in bottle. 92+ Points (Sep 2015)

Selvapiana is a classic Tuscan fattoria located in the Chianti Rufina zone east of Florence, situated on 240 hectares, 45 of which are devoted to vineyards. It was originally a summer residence for the Florentine bishops and later belonged to a series of Florentine merchant families. The property was purchased in 1827 by Michele Giuntini Selvapiana. Since 1957 it has been run by Francesco Giuntini Antinori and he has worked to restore the reputation of Chianti Rufina. Rufina's soil of galestro mixed with limestone and clay combined with its proximity to the Apennines provide a special microclimate for late ripening fruit with high acidity. Selvapiana's reputation is based on producing red wines from the terroir of this unique location. Along with the vintage Chianti Rufina, there are also two particularly fine crus: the Chianti Rufina Riserva Bucerchiale, and Fornace, a blend of the estate's Sangiovese and international varietals. The Selvapiana estate also manages the Fattoria Petrognano, which was built around an ancient medieval tower and purchased in 1860 bythe Budini Gattai family. This Fattoria produces an excellent Pomino Rosso..
