Ruby with red berry fruit aromas, citrus and floral notes. On the palate raspberry and cherry flavors with nutty spice notes. Tannins are rustic and firm, medium finish ending with savory character. Drink now, no aging benefit.

Smooth, red fruits and a good tannine structure that creates a lifespan for this wine! True bargain @g&g for 10,-

Sandy tannins, sour cherry, refreshing acidity. Youthful wine, but drinks nice already. One of my favourites from Frescobaldi portfolio. It holds age very well. And confirms that Chianti outside the classic zone exists as well. Well, that's true for Rufina at least.

Black cherry both fresh and dried, a little tobacco, and just a nice balance overall. Driving fruit and acid with a great long finish given the price point

Very nicely in balance now. Red fruit explosion with nice roasted/Smokey tones. Now Ready from the get-go without decanting!
