"Dark mulberry and black cherry notes are supported by well-integrated oak in this dense red. Hints of licorice and tobacco reveal more of its sense of place, and this finishes fresh and long. Best from 2013 through 2020. 18,000 cases made."~B.S.

Fattoria di Basciano

View all from Fattoria di Basciano
Fattoria di Basciano is the estate owned by the Masi family since the beginning of 1900. It is located right in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area, on the top of a hill 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, locally known as "Galestro". The microclimate is ideal for the ripening of the grapes. It is dry and breezy, marked by a scarcity of rain and a remarkable range of night and day temperatures in summertime. The extension of the property is of 70 Ha, divided in 30 Ha of vineyard, 20 Ha of olive trees, and 20 Ha of forest. In the last fifteen years the ownership has been engaged in a program of research for the highest quality. These efforts lead them to invest consistently, by planting new vineyards and building a new winery for the vinification and the aging, in barrel, of the wine.
