Selvapiana Logo

Selvapiana is owned by Francesco Giuntini, descendant of the original owner, Michele Giuntini, who bought the estate in 1827. Federico Giuntini Masseti, who was born on the estate,now runs it and makes the wines with consultant Franco Bernabei. The estate covers 245 hectares of which 54 hectares is vineyard and the rest is olive groves and woods. Although Rufina is the smallest of the Chianti zones, it is also one of the most special, with a cool breeze blowing down the Sieve Valley which gives the best wines a finesse that few in Chianti Classico can match.
