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. Chianti Ruffino expresses the flavor and charm of the noble Sangiovese grape - its main component - and the character and complexity of the Chianti climate and soil. Because the marque is produced from grapes grown throughout the broad Chianti area - not exclusively from vineyards in the Classico district - it is called simply Chianti. 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.
