Ruffino Chianti Superiore 2009 750ml

Ruffino Chianti Superiore

Ruby red in color, Chianti Superiore shows typical Sangiovese character with notes of cherries and violets followed by hints of vanilla and clove. The palate is dominated by ripe fruit flavors with the well-balanced structure leading to an elegant finish of ripe cherries and plums.

Il Superiore Chianti Superiore was recently introduced into Ruffino's portfolio and represents a precious complement to the winery's rich Chianti selection, reinterpreted in a new style which reflects the demanding taste of the modern consumer.

Il Superiore Chianti Superiore is produced by grapes selected in low yield vineyards located in the Chianti area. No more that 7 tons of grapes per hectare are cultivated in these vineyards. Such a yield is even lower than the one produced in most Chianti Classico vineyards. 75% Sangiovese (minimum required by DOCG) and 25% other red varieties including Canaiolo Nero, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as permitted by Chianti Superiore regulations.

This is the only Chianti wine we like. It is far above in flavor compared to many others.
A bit thin and not "Superiore" to anything. I was hoping for a country cousin of the higher end Ruffinos, but found it unrelated. Although reasonably priced, which is why I took a chance, there are better values at this price point.
