Founded in 1877 by two cousins, Ruffino is world renowned for the consistency and quality of their Tuscan wines.
Ruffino Chianti was the first Chianti to be imported to the US. Their Chianti is an approachable, easy-drinking wine that has predominantly fruity and floral aromatics, with hints of spice and hazelnut. On the palate, Chianti DOCG is soft with a medium body and nice balance, displaying pleasantly fruity characteristics.
As a young Sangiovese, Ruffino Chianti pairs beautifully with a variety of traditional Italian dishes such as ravioli, margherita pizza, or beef carpaccio. Its low alcohol and bright acidity make it a great pairing for international favorites such as a classic hamburger or tacos. (from the vintner)
