Red berry fruit along with floral rose character and well delineated black pepper lead into a full, dry red, with supple tannin character and smoky oak finish.
Pairs with poultry, white meats, red meats, lighter style pasta dishes and hard yellow cheeses.

Here’s a beautiful creation from Colognole. The 2011 Chianti Rufina Reserva del Don is delicate and finessed with wild berry aromas, blackberry, spice, leather and pressed rose petal. This is a pure expression of Sangiovese that is aged in oak for two years. Only 8,000 bottles are produced. Reserva del Don is a dark and nicely saturated wine with good length, balanced acidity and general intensity. If you are looking for Tuscan elegance, this Chianti Rufina will not disappoint.
