Ruby red with violet reflections. The bouquet is intense and denotes a pleasant complexity, with notes of cassis, cherries jam, plums and chocolate. It then fades into very clean flavors of tobacco, vanilla, eucalyptus and spice. These pleasant spicy notes added by Syrah exalts the sensations of red and black fruit and aromatic herbs, given by Sangiovese as well as the roundness typical of Merlot. Harmonic and well balanced, the initial predominance of fruity notes develops to compliment the round and elegant tannins. The aftertaste is long and satisfying with refined notes of ripe fruits together with aromas of pepper, vanilla and balsamic herbs. A modern Tuscan wine born from Ruffino's century old winemaking tradition.
this is a good standard table wine
nice wine for the money ash bouquet, subtle fruit pleasing finish.
A wonderful wine at an extraordinary price. This wine has a jammy, cherry, silky berry taste followed by aromatic herbs and spices. My wife and I used some in the steak pizzaiola, had a glass while cooking and opened a second bottle for supper. Goes well with hearty sauces and sharp cheeses and will put a smile on everyone's face.
60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 20% Syrah
This smooth red wine is a perfect accompaniment to herb-roasted chicken, meatball sliders, or beef carpaccio. Pair with tomato bruschetta or with Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano cheeses for Italian-style-entertaining.
