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.

SENSORY PROPERTIES Colour: Ruby red Aroma: 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. Tasting profile: Medium-bodied, Chianti Ruffino is pleasantly fruity, harmonious and persistent. A young Sangiovese which can be perfectly matched with a wide variety of traditional Italian dishes.

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.

Super well-crafted, with lots of lovely fruit, berry and vanilla flavors, fine tannins and lovely acidity. Has great balance. Drink on release.

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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red color. As always this Chianti features a deliciously vinous bouquet, where the floral and fruity notes lead towards a finish of slightly spicy scents of wild cherry and hazelnuts. Medium-bodied, Chianti Ruffino is pleasantly fruity, harmonious and persistent. A young Sangiovese which can be perfectly matched with a wide variety of traditional Italian dishes.
