Tasting Panel, 92 Points 

"Smooth texture with notes of juicy raspberry and black cherry; tangy, clean, and racy. A pure and balanced wine with length." 

Wine Enthusiast 

"Aromas of dark-skinned fruit, ground pepper and baking spice lead the nose. The straightforward palate offers red plum, star anise and clove alongside smooth tannins." 

About the Producer: 

"In 1877, Illario and Leopoldo Ruffino laid the foundations of their dream to make the most known and loved Italian wines in the world from the heart of Tuscany. At their winery in Pontassieve, just outside of Florence, they began producing wines according to a strict quality standard and a rigorous technical research. Soon, Ruffino became an international symbol of the Chianti region, and won numerous awards, including the prestigious gold medal at the Bordeaux Wine Fair in 1895, affirming the quality of its wine. 

In 1913, the Folonari family purchased Ruffino and brought new talent, energy and enthusiasm into the company. They started on a nearly century-long pursuit to develop a collection of estates in Tuscany, all of which matched the standard of quality and uniqueness which was the trademark of Ruffino wine. 

Over the last sixty years, Ruffino has established seven prominent estates in Tuscany, all situated within the major DOCG production regions including Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti and Chianti Classico. Today, Ruffino continues to meld century-long Tuscan traditions with new state-of-the-art cellar technology and modern winemaking for an ideal symbiosis with the energy of the contemporary Italian lifestyle." 

Pair With: Traditional dishes such as roasted chicken with rosemary and portobello mushroom ravioli, as well as international dishes such as tandoori chicken and pork buns
