|My Tasting Notes:|
Colognole Chianti Rufina 2003, Tuscany, Italy: Mostly Sangiovese with a bit of Colorino, Colognole’s Chianti is aged for 12 months in
barrel and then spends another six in bottle before release. Though Chianti Classico
receives much deserved praise, Chianti Rufina is quietly gaining a solid reputation of its
own. Many believe, even though these wines are generally softer than the Classico
versions, they have the ability to age longer. This version is an ideal candidate for mid-term aging 3-5 years. My note: Simple, rustic and classic. This Chianti displays aromas of sour cherries and is full-bodied. Drink: 2007-2012. 974501 13% XD 750 mL $16.95 Score: 88/100. August 4, 2007 Full Review
