Brand Ruffino
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
This complex and deep red wine is characterized by sweet cherry and red berry fruit notes with delicately spiced hints of tobacco, leather, cedar, white pepper and a touch of flint. It's well balanced on the palate, with velvety tannins, firm acidity and a lingering finish of rosemary and figs. Its structure will allow it to age for many years. Food Pairing: Enjoy this timeless Tuscan gem with Italian favorites such as prosciutto and other antipasti, mushroom risotto, pasta Bolognese, and chicken cacciatore. Or, pair it with simple grilled meats and roasted vegetables for a classic Tuscan meal.

Packaged with its distinctive yellow label, the Ruffino 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale opens to a lean raspberry or ruby color with bright aromas of tart cherry and wild plum. This is a recognized, well-traveled wine and a mini-ambassador for Chianti Classico around the world. The reasons for the wine's popularity are directly linked to the varietal purity and Tuscan personality on display.

A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this opens with aromas of new leather, blue flowers and sunbaked earth. On the rounded palate, polished tannins accompany dried cherry, licorice and a hint of grilled herb. Drink through 2023.
