Ruffino Chianti 2014 1.5 Liters DOCG
Chianti Ruffino is brilliant ruby red in color, with an intriguing, typical aroma of violets. In the mouth, it is dry and medium-bodied, with cherry fruit flavor, refreshing acidity, and medium tannin. The overall impression is a well-balanced, harmonious wine, which is complex but not imposing. Thanks to its fresh, easy-drinking style, it is ideal with all sorts of pasta dishes, poultry and light meats such as veal, and medium-strength cheeses.
In 1877, Illario and Leopoldo Ruffino laid the foundations of their dream to make the most known and loved Italian wines in the world from the heart of Tuscany. At their winery in Pontassieve, just outside of Florence, they began producing wines according to a strict quality standard and a rigorous technical research. Soon, Ruffino became an international symbol of the Chianti region, and won numerous awards, including the prestigious gold medal at the Bordeaux Wine Fair in 1895, affirming the quality of its wine.
In 1913, the Folonari family purchased Ruffino and brought new talent, energy and enthusiasm into the company. They started on a nearly century-long pursuit to develop a collection of estates in Tuscany, all of which matched the standard of quality and uniqueness which was the trademark of Ruffino wine.
Over the last sixty years, Ruffino has established seven prominent estates in Tuscany, all situated within the major DOCG production regions including Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti and Chianti Classico. Today, Ruffino continues to meld century-long Tuscan traditions with new state-of-the-art cellar technology and modern winemaking for an ideal symbiosis with the energy of the contemporary Italian lifestyle.
