The wine displays a ruby red core with violet reflections. The bouquet is complex and intense, with outstanding notes of cassis, cherries jam, plums and chocolate. Then it shows very clean flavors of tobacco, vanilla, eucalyptus and spice. The zingy notes added by Syrah perfectly match with the sensations of red and black fruit and aromatic herbs, given by Sangiovese and even with the roundness typical of Merlot.
On the palate the wine is Medium bodied, with an initial predominance of fruity notes, that slowly match with round and elegant tannins. The finish is almost sweet, and the very long aftertaste brings notes of ripe fruits together with aromas of vanilla and balsamic herbs.
A modern Tuscan wine born from Ruffino's century old winemaking tradition.
A little lean, but there's plenty of ripe fruit, offering berry and blueberry aromas and flavors, with hints of light toasty oak. This should soften with bottle age. Best after 2011.
