    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red in color, with violet hues. Intense and complex, Romitorio di Santedame displays a fragrant nose of black currants, cranberries and raspberries, with earthier notes of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. A structured palate with balanced tannins, acidity, and fresh fruit flavors lead into a lingering finish of strawberries, coffee, hazelnuts, and mint chocolate.

    60% Colorino, 40% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Romitorio di Santedame is Ruffino’s top wine. It is a big, plump wine and is almost too thick and powerful in places, making it well suited to succulent cuts of red meat. But it’s hard not to love its extraction, sophisticated mouthfeel and blockbuster tannins. Drink after 2010.

    There's pleasant damson fruit and mineral character, with hints of chocolate and flowers. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit lingering on a lightly firm, velvety texture. Needs a little more bottle time. Colorino and Merlot. Best after 2009. 4,000 cases made.
