Brilliant ruby red
with purple hues, this wine has intense aromas of red cherries, violets and currants,
followed by a hint of spice. Wellstructured
and balanced on the palate, Rubio is easygoing
versatile, but also notable for its intensity and elegance. Try it with antipasti or tapas, pasta dishes
with tomato sauce, or grilled sausages—a perfect bytheglass
"Though ripe, this shows a lively structure to its black cherry, raspberry and toasty vanilla flavors. Well-balanced, with a moderate finish. San giovese. Drink now through 2013. 80,000 cases made."
"The 2009 Rubio bursts from the glass with layers of dark fruit that build with notable intensity. This plump, engaging wine is a huge overachiever in its price range. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015. "
