Food Pairings for Ruffino Chianti
cherry, very tart and acidic for my tastes (but again, that based on my palate)
Ruffino always seems to turn out a pretty good Chianti. This one definitely fits that category. Nice fruity aroma that follows through on the tasting. Fairly long and clean finish - the fruity taste lingers. Very good quality wine, particularly considering the price.
Elegant, easy to drink.
nice quaffer, no headache next morning, nice light simple wine. no acidic after taste. good one to have in stock for everyday use. like a nice vino da tavola in a good restaurant in italy
ok - here's the deal. I like Chianti, i just feel like it's waaay overrated; especially when the San Giovese (sp?) grapes are young. with time and age they mature well, without that though - it's too rough around the edges for true connoisseurs... ma, solo secondo me
Light-bodied with hints of spices, this wine should age well over the next 2 years.
I am newer to Chiantis, but tried the Ruffino on a recommendation. Hints of dark fruits, with a woody finish. Flavors are muddled and indistinct. Not a lot of body to this wine, with an unpleasantly tart and acid lingering.
External Reviews for Ruffino Chianti
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.
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 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.
Super well-crafted, with lots of lovely fruit, berry and vanilla flavors, fine tannins and lovely acidity. Has great balance. Drink on release.
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.
Wine Tasting NotesRuby red in color. Notes of sweet violet, red berries, and Morello cherries with slightly spicy undertones. The finish reveals hints of rosemary and tobacco. The taste is well balanced with very pleasing fruit notes accompanied by sweet spices and pepper with a hint of aromatic wood. The aftertaste is long, smooth, and velvety.
As always this Chianti features a deliciously vinous bouquet, where the floral and fruity notes lead towards a finish of slightly spicy scents of white pepper and hazelnuts. Medium-bodied, harmonious and persistent, Chianti Ruffino is a young Sangiovese which can be perfectly matched with a wide variety of traditional Italian dishes. - Winery
