Fattoria Selvapiana is owned by Francesco Giuntini, a descendent of the original owner, Michele Giuntini, who bought the estate in 1827. His adopted son, Federico Giuntini Masseti, now runs the estate. Federico is the son of the 'fattore' (estate manager) who has worked with the Giuntini family all his life. Federico was born on the estate, as was his sister Silvia, who is also involved in running the business. Located northeast of Florence in the Rufina zone, one of the smallest in Chianti at only 600 hectares, Selvapiana has 31 hectares of the Frantoio variety planted. Rufina is the coolest of all Tuscan olive oil producing zones, so tends to produce a greener, spicier oil than most.
