Very nice elements of dark berries and vanilla with a medium body and a rich mouth feel. Tannins provide some structure and good acids keep it from feeling mushy. Less of the thin cherry common with Sangiovese, more of the brambly plum that reminds me of some Zins. We ordered this and a Super Tuscan at a group dinner and went back for 3 more of these!

Soft, feminine bouquet of fresh red fruits balanced by nicely integrated oak fragrances and delicate floral undertones. Quite smooth and attractive, a well balanced vino.

Very ripe aromas of black licorice and hints of raisins. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a peppery finish. Lacks a bit of finesse, but impressive. Best after 2003.

Aromas of plum, tobacco and grilled meat. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Slightly hollow midpalate.

Very aromatic, offering bright blackberry and light vanilla aromas. Full-bodied, with vibrant fruit, fine tannins and a clean, crisp, fruity finish. Best after 2008.

Plenty of fresh currant and berry aromas and flavors here, if a bit one-dimensional. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.

This well known Italian winery has produced a lovely red that is 90% Sangiovese, with small amounts of Malvasia Nera, Colorino, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon added to give the wine more depth. It starts out with an enticing violet floral nose, and shows a deep ruby red in color. The wine is full-bodied, with well-focused tannins and a touch of warm spiciness on the finish. Perfect for sipping by the fireplace with an antipasto or tomato basil bruschetta.

A burly Rufina, offering dried dark fruits and chewy tannins, with an aftertaste of dark chocolate and mineral. Full and satisfying, with fresh acidity on the back palate. A go-to Chianti. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

#65 of the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010 "A burly Rufina, with dried dark fruits, chewy tannins and a dark chocolate and mineral aftertaste. Full and satisfying. Always the fresh acidity in the back palate. A go to Chianti. Drink now...91" WS 10/10

Tasting Notes:

It  appears  a  deep,  purple-edged  ruby  red,  of  impressive brilliance.  Solid  fruit  notes  of  wild  blackberry,  blueberry, raspberry  and  dark  cherry  emerge  initially  on  the  nose, gradually  yielding  to  more  pungent  impressions  of  sage, rosemary, vanilla,  and  cinnamon.  That  spiciness  segues onto  the  palate,  and  then  into  a  finish  that  ends  with  a flourish  of  balsam,  black  pepper,  and  cocoa  powder.  The  mid-palate  shows  alcoholic  warmth  and  roundedness, while  the  tannins  and  acidity  are  noticeable,  adding to the wine’s overall harmony.
