Sweet, dry red. Red fruit, very smooth. Easy to drink and very enjoyable. Nothing spectacular for depth but just a nice chianti.
Inky barnyard aroma, lots of red fruit in the body
no tasting notes.
External Reviews for Travignoli Chianti Rufina Riserva
Fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperatures for 7 to 8 days with an additional 3 to 4 days on the skins. The wine is then racked and goes through malolactic. It is then racked again and stays another 7 months in stainless steel.A ruby red color with garnet reflections. An intense, vinous bouquet with hints of leather and ripe cherry fruit. The flavor is full of mature fruit with nuances of leather and liquorice. The finish is persistent and rich.Pairs well with salamis, pastas, grilled or roasted meats, dishes flavored with mushrooms, or rosemary. Excellent with polenta dishes.100% Sangiovese.
