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.

Wine Advocate 90  “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.
