Selciaia is a young easy-to-drink red wine. It comes from 10 hectares of selected vineyards, about 350 meters above sea level in the Montepulciano hills. Six months of aging in oak strengthens the structure without dominating the aromas and flavours of the grape varieties. It has intense ruby-red color with purple reflections typical of fresh wine. It is characterized by a fragrant and spicy aroma with delicate notes of viola, cherry, plums and raspberry, and an elegant aftertaste of licorice and vanilla. It has a fruity taste with spicy notes, dry and slightly tannic.

The producer

Fassati is an antique Tuscan winery located in the Chianti area. It was founded in 1913 by Marquis Fassati and named in honour of its founder. From 1925 Fassati winery is a proud holder of the title of “Pope Supplier” given by Prefect of Saint Apostolic Palace. In 1969 the winery, managed by new owners, purchased various vineyards in the best production areas and started to produce Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The wineyards are all numbered and classified, which allows to track and to better understand the vine and its potential. This philosophy is practiced until now in respect of the antique traditions which have marked the territory and Fassati name. The actual ownership counts about 100 hectares of vineyards with a potential that places Fassati among the first five wineries of Montepulciano.
