Selvapiana's 2017 Chianti Rùfina is bright, floral and nicely lifted, as it always is, but with a bit more textural richness and body than normal. Plush red fruit and silky contours, the signatures of a warm, dry year, give the Selvapiana's Chianti Rùfina an extra bit of immediacy and near-term appeal. Even in 2017, the Rùfina retains good energy and plenty of verve.
