The master of Chianti Rufina, Selvapiana’s Flagship wine. The Riserva Bucerchiale is a stunner and a bargain at 288 SEK (29EUR). Youthful and would do well with a couple of years on its back, but as its open and invites you to its inner soul it presents a gorgeous mix of red and dark fresh berries with floral minty streak lying a par with incense, herbs, licorice with cold steel and gravel that is luring in the background.
Fresh acidity and plenty of gripping tannins holds the palate in a firm grip as its walks through a fresh but concentrated and evolving palate with a good stamina cross the mid plate through a complete and long finish.
Stock up on this one and drink from 2023 and onwards.
Epilogue: very positive development over two days, fruit turns sweeter, more florals emerge and palate is overall more approachable, yet I stand firm that it will be even better after a couple of years in bottle. 93+

Still a bit green, but silky smooth.

The green notes dominate right now. There’s good fruit and vigor hiding right underneath however. I’d let a 2nd bottle of this sit at least 5 years.

2021/8-9. While still quite young, this is now ready to enjoy as a rich, deep but a still tangy traditional-styled Chianti

2021 spring / summer. Still dense and rich, but now with just enough time to start to become accessible. Really good.

Wonderful Sangiovese, at five years accessible with a bit of time in the decanter. Camphor, graphite, cherry, bitter chocolate, and a dark heart that fleshes out the structure. Aromas are fabulous, long finish.

2021/4. I restocked intending to age a few but dipped into my supply - guess I’d better buy some more.
