Selvapiana is a 593 acre estate located in the Chianti Rufina appellation. The property was purchased in 1827 by Michele Giuntini Selvapiana who in turn sold it to Francesco Giuntini Antinori in 1957. The estate’s vineyards span 111 acres and are planted on a mix of galestro, limestone and clay soils. The long growing season allows the fruit to reach the proper levels of phenolic ripeness. In addition to Chianti Rufina, the portfolio also includes a Chianti Rufina Riserva Bucerchiale, and Fornace, a blend of the estate’s Sangiovese and international varieties. The Selvapiana estate also manages Fattoria Petrognano, which produces Pomino Rosso. Managers Silvia and Federico Giuntini Massetti work closely with Franco Bernabei, the consultant winemaker since 1978.
