This opens with an attractive fragrance of ripe plum, violet, aromatic herb and baking spice. The straightforward palate offers dried black cherry, crushed raspberry, ground pepper and leather alongside polished tannins. Drink sooner rather than later to capture the remaining fruit freshness.
Executed in a streamlined and traditional style, the 2011 Chianti Rufina is a tonic and tight wine that would make a natural pairing partner to cheesy pasta dishes. Aromas include cassis, forest berry and toasted almond husk. The bright acidity of Sangiovese adds a touch of thorny sharpness to the close.
