Ruffino Aziano Chianti 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Always a good value from the celebrated Tuscan producer, Ruffino and showing raspberries on the nose, a full-bodied bargain. Wonderful with roast chicken and, of course, pasta.

The 2008 Ruffino Chianti was a bright, but deep ruby. On the nose, there were cedar, ripe cherry, and black pepper aromas, followed by the slightest hint of violets. In the mouth, there were big, Bing cherry flavors, followed by black pepper, rose petals, and tobacco. The Chianti had a high acidity, low tannins, and a light-to-medium body.

This is thin, insipid garbage. Has more nose than taste. I have noticed that Ruffino's lower price offerings keep getting worse. I think you have to pay for the Riserva Ducale to get a decent offering from Ruffino.

This wine is very drinkable, which is why it usually makes it into my jug/daily wine stash. This wine isn't as acidic as most sangiovese, nor does it have much tannic bite. A nice inexpensive red for those in the "i don't like reds" crowd. A light colored body and a fruity plum taste lands in my Wednesday night is pizza night club. -Drink it in!

I bought this to have with pappa al pomodoro (a tomato and peasant bread soup). The peppery-ness and intensity matched the food nicely.

Aziano is produced an Ruffino's Zano Estate, an historic site located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region in the town of Greve. Aziano has aromas of cherry, chocolate and tobacco. Balanced, yet complex, displaying waves of black fruit with a velvety finish. Aziano partners well with veal, lightly spiced pastas and mild cheeses.

A single estate Chianti Classico with fresh cherry flavors and a smooth velvety finish. Complex yet soft, Aziano is a perfect accompaniment to a hearty fare.

Aziano has a ruby-red color, with a bouquet of cherry, chocolate and tobacco. It is well-balanced yet complex, displaying ripe fruit with a velvety finish. Vigorous and harmonious, Aziano is ready to drink now and has the potential for short-term aging.

Aging in large oak casks brings a fuller, more complex personality to this wine made in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. Black cherries, plums and nutty flavors are hallmarks of this medium-bodied red.

An aroma of fresh black cherries, bitter chocolate and hint of tobacco. The palate is medium weight, smooth and silky, with black cherry fruit, medium tannin, and invigorating acidity. Good concentration and complexity.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Ruby red Aroma: Vibrant and inviting. The Sangiovese based wines of the Chianti Classico regions are characterized by notes of sweet violet, red berries and wild cherries with slightly spicy undertones. The finish reveals hints of aromatic herbs. Tasting profile: Fruity and harmonious, the taste reveals velvety tannins and an elegant texture. A long and persistent aftertaste characterizes this wine.

Always a good value from the celebrated Tuscan producer, Ruffino and showing raspberries on the nose, a full-bodied bargain. Wonderful with roast chicken and, of course, pasta.
