screw cap wine

Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant straw yellow. The bouquet is truly inviting with its refined notes of meadow flowers that elegantly fade into fragrant fruity notes of golden apples, citrus fruits and bananas. The finish offers an elegant touch of bread crust, thanks to the refinement period on the lees. The taste is fragrant and harmonious with a pleasant roundness well balanced by a lively freshness. Libaio 2010 presents notes of golden apple, sage and figs while the finish, very aromatic and persistent, has hints of orange peel.

About Ruffino:

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.
