Color: ruby red with violet hues. Aroma: the bouquet is intense and typical of Chianti. Fruity notes of fresh plums, black cherries, well matched with nice flavours of black pepper and spices. Tasting profile: intense and medium-bodied, Superiore 2008 demonstrates a surprisingly fresh wine. Tannins, well balanced between elegance and aggressiveness, are perfectly matched with the fruity body of this Chianti. The aftertaste is very persistent and lays on notes of fresh cherry and blueberry.
i have not received the two bottles I ordered and paid for. When will i get delivery?
We found this wine to be very mediocre, even after airing it. Even at the price it was offered, we would not buy it again.
Wine Maker Notes
The wines branded Ruffino are characterised by the fragrance of their bouquet and the pleasant softness of their taste. They are easy to drink, perfect for sharing with friends and family, ideal for matching with traditional Italian dishes.
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.
