Located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Rufina area, this outstanding Italian red is crafted by the famed Masi family. After purchasing the Fattoria di Basciano in 1932, they quickly went to work removing the old plantings in favor of specialized Tuscan varieties. For the past 80 years, the Masi's have become world renown for their deeper versions of Chianti with full, intense flavors, excellent tannin structure and a round harmonious finish.

The Fattoria di Basciano is located in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area, overlooking the Argomenna valley on one side and the right bank of the Sieve River on the other. The vineyards are at an elevation of 300 meters above sea level, lying on a very stony soil, known locally as Galestro. The micro-climate is ideal for the ripening of the grapes, dry and breezy, marked by scarcity of rain and a remarkable range of night and day temperatures.

Rating
"The 2012 Chianti Rufina is loaded tight with red cherry, blackberry and bold fruit tones. The wine is darker and more extracted than many of its peers and it offers a great sense of integrity and wholesomeness. Sweet cherry appears on the close. I was excited by this wine." The Wine Advocate, 90 Points
