RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

wonderful structured rufina, full of red fruit and acidity, great weight
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.
External Reviews for Nipozzano Chianti Rufina Riserva Marchâteau de Frescobaldi Rødvin Italia Toscana Chianti Rufina
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.
Sleek and well made. medium-bodied with cherry and mineral aromas and flavors. Fine tannins mark the finish.
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.
#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
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.
