Ruffino Santedame Chianti Classico 2004
Very deep ruby red with violet hues. The fruity bouquet is surprisingly fragrant with enveloping notes of black currant, cranberries, and raspberries, accompanied by intriguing smoky spices, such as cloves, nutmeg and a cinnamon. The long ageing in oak, followed by an extensive refining in the bottle, adds a pleasant ethereal quality to the bouquet. The Romitorio di Santedame is full bodied and elegant, with an impressive balance between all components. Both alcohol and acidity are well integrated in the massive structure and the long-lasting aftertaste features notes of strawberries and coffee, hazelnuts and mint chocolate.
This wine is aged in oak and features floral, fruity notes. There are also hints of cinnamon, cedar and freshly ground coffee. It's very smooth and pleasant to drink.
Very rare Chianti wine. Dry with a distinct tannin. Why is it not sold in Norway!
