    Winemaker's Notes:

    Bright ruby red in color. The bouquet is fruity and inviting, with notes of plums and blackberries. The Syrah adds pleasant spicy hints that mingle with herbaceous characteristics and round red fruit attributed to the Merlot. Expressions of nutmeg, tobacco and mint are layered with wild cherries and chocolate. Lovely balance, acidity and round tannins make Il Ducale fresh yet elegant on the palate. Il Ducale is a modern Tuscan wine that pays homage to Ruffino's century-old winemaking tradition, while adding a modern twist.

    This smooth red wine is a perfect accompaniment to a variety of foods and cuisines. Try it with herbroasted chicken, beef braciola or meatball paninis. Pair with beef carpaccio, tomato bruschetta or with Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano cheeses for Italian-style-entertaining.

    Blend: 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 20% Syrah
