It then spends time in steel tanks (30%), Sessile oak casks (50%) and barriques (20%). After blending, the wine is refined in French oak casks for two to three months.

VinousSelvapiana'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.
