SELVAPIANA Chianti Rufina 2018

(Chianti, Tuscany, Italy) $17

Talk about over-delivering. Here’s a Chianti that—for about $3 a glass–turns mere eating into dining. With a great pasta, and maybe a caprese salad, you’re in business. I love the delicious notes of red fruit, roses, cinnamon, and something beautifully salty. This is the sort of traditional Chianti that can transport one right back to a trattoria in Tuscany twenty years ago. (Wine and memories). Selvapiana has been making wine for almost 200 years in Chianti Rufina (Rufina is the smallest subzone in the Chianti area). (13.5% abv)
