Ruffino Chianti 2000
Fonterutoli's flagship wine and is the most representative of the estate's production. This wine's deep roots in the territory represents a point of reference for the whole of Chianti Classico. Very concentrated ruby-purple in color. Complex notes of elegant fruit along with the vanilla and toasty oak. The power and controlled elegance of Sangiovese, an enviable freshness and a natural balance and harmony.
