Ruffino Chianti holds a very special place in the winery’s heart. This wine was first produced by winery founders Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino, and for over a century it has been a benchmark for the entire Chianti category. For many consumers worldwide, Ruffino Chianti is Chianti. Ruffino has, in fact, greatly influenced the world’s perception of Chianti wines. Chianti wine was traditionally known for its ”fiasco” - its characteristic straw bottle which was shaped like the goatskin wine container that a man living in the Middle Ages would have slung from his saddlebow. Ruffino made international headlines and single-handedly updated Chianti’s image by replacing this traditional straw flask with a refined Florentine bottle in 1975. This bottle is a unique Ruffino trademark.
Tasting notes
This medium-bodied, well-balanced wine is approachable and aromatic, with classic Chianti aromas of violet and wonderful cherry fruit flavors. It finishes with spicy hints of wild cherry and hazelnut. It retains these fresh and fruity flavors since it receives no wood aging. Pair this Chianti DOCG with a variety of traditional Italian dishes such as ravioli, margherita pizza, and beef carpaccio.

Review
Colour: Ruby red

Aroma: As always this Chianti features a deliciously vinous bouquet, where the floral and fruity notes lead towards a finish of slightly spicy scents of wild cherry and hazelnuts.

Tasting profile: Medium-bodied, Chianti Ruffino is pleasantly fruity, harmonious and persistent.
