Way back in 1930, Paolo Masi’s grandfather founded Fattoria di Basciano in the heart of Chianti’s premium Rufina district. Today, Paolo carries on the family legacy in fantastic style—he makes many of our best-selling Tuscan wines and is beloved by customers and critics alike...

Since graduating top of his class at Florence’s wine university, “Paolo Masi has made an excellent impression with the estate wines of his family property,” says The Wine Advocate. Respected Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso also sings his praises, writing that his wines show “irreproachably clean, fresh fruit and abundant personality,” while Wine Spectator has rated his Riserva a “No. 1 Outstanding Chianti Buy.”

He’s also a bit of a rebel. To craft his new ‘Poggerissi’ cuvée, Paolo sourced Sangiovese grapes from vineyards in Chianti and from prime-sited plots just outside its borders. That means the wine can’t say Chianti on the label, but you’ll still enjoy all the hallmarks of fine Chianti in the glass.

Look forward to vibrant cherry and plum flavors, supported by hints of marzipan and a savory edge. With structured, food-friendly tannins and a long, fruit-rich finish, it’s the perfect red for a big, Italian-style feast.

All the elegance of Chianti at a friendlier price. Order your share today.
