Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2006 Fattoria Di Basciano Chianti Rufina Riserva, originally sold for $25.95 and now for $19.95, is medium bodied, INTEGRATED to aged wine, with intense aromas of dark chocolate, smoke, leather and vanilla on the nose and red currant and cherry on the palate. It is tannic (decant for 1 to 2 hours) and the finish is medium to long. It is good to drink now or can be held for 5 more years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - and would have been a recommended buy if still widely available (in fact, I thought this was October 15th release). Tasted Oct/11.
Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Rich smokey nose. Full body. Lots of dark fruit. Prunes. Very centered on the palate. Lacks a bit of 'width' and roundness. A bit of bitterness on the finish.
Richard rated this wine as 85/100
