Winemaker's Notes

This is a compelling red fermented and matured without the use of oak. The result is a full-bodied red that maintains a compelling clarity of fruit; a versatile food wine, this Sangiovese is would become amzing in the next years to come.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. Perfumed red cherry, violet and cinnamon, and red cherry on the enticing nose. Clean, crisp and very fruity, with succulent, very smooth red berry and cherry flavors. Finishes clean and long. This is one of the best-ever young Rufina Chiantis by Travignoli."
