Charming with flowers, fruit, and leather. Everything is in the nose and front pallet. The finish falls short which is why the 89. Great way to start an evening of laughter at a live political comedy show with Bill Maher! No joke!

Tried this along with the 08 and 2010. All were medicore. Could taste the brett in all of them. Time ain't gonna do those wines any favors. I never had Ruffino before, and was excited because they get 36 mos in barrel. Too bad they were lacking and out of balance; higher pH, overly tannic, nose and palate dominated by Brettanomyces.

Lovely notes of maturity (cigar wrapper) creeping into this 2009. Super ripe fruits yet provocatively drinkable thanks to solid acidity.

Sorry Ryan this ones not for you but only the best with best of friends. Doing it with fresh made sauce and vegan wheat balls. I like my meat and Chianti but this is just excellent.

Nariz: cereza, especies secas, cuero, tabaco, brea

Boca: Seco, Tanino M, Acidez M, Alcohol M/M+.

Muy buena nariz, pero en boca al final se queda un poco corto.
