This wine is full of juicy, ripe black cherry flavours with notes of vanilla and summer herbs. On the palate there is wonderful concentration and balance, while the finish is long with firm, fine tannins.

Producer

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 thee 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 mtrs. on sea level, lying on a very stony soil, locally known as “Galestro”. The micro-climate is ideal for the ripening of the grapes. It is dry and breeze, marked by scarcity of rain and a remarkable range of night and day temperature in summertime.

In the last fifteen years the vineyard has been engaged in a program of research and investment in the quest for achieving the highest quality level including the plantíng of new vineyards, building a new winery for the vinification and the ageing in barrel of the wine.The original core of Basciano is an ancient guard tower, dating back to the 13th century, which has also been restored.
