Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Ruffino Il Ducale Sangiovese Merlot Syrah 2007 Wine Review
Thrillingly delicious! Aromas of black cherry, sun-dried tomato, black olive, smoke and earth. Smooth, full-bodied and mouth-wateringly tasty. A long, satisfying finish that will make you believe you're basking under the Tuscan sun. Pair with: lasanga, meat lovers pizza, sausages, pasta with tomato sauce. 4.5/5

|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 4.4/5 with the following review:|
The 2007 Ruffino Il Ducale is a medium bodied wine, with notes of integrated raspberry, cedar/thyme, coconut and vanilla. Tannins are refined (decant for 1 to 2 hours) and the finish is medium to long and smooth. Good to drink now and for the next 5 years. My impression: NICE, 88.5 pts - a bit costly in my view. Tasted Apr/11.
|Darlene Myers rated this wine as 4.4/5 with the following review:|
A complex wine, I love the blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. The three together make for a well structured wine with lots of plums, cherries and chocolate. Smooth and velvety, the wine boasts fruity flavors, soft tannins and a pleasantly persistent finish with hints of pepper and vanilla.
