Natalie's Score: 92/100
The 2012 vintage was a strong one for Tuscany and it shows in the glass. Full-bodied and savoury with juicy, mouth-watering aromas and flavours of dark red berries and spice. Pair with tangy tomato sauce.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A delicious extra-dry Chianti Classico from Italy's esteemed Ruffino winery. Lots of tart cherry, subtly interwoven baking spice and mouth-watering acidity that makes this so food-friendly. Always a hit!
Tasted Oct. 2016

|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Tasted in 2021. This 2012 vintage is mature, with lots of life and vibrancy still. Aromas of dried and tart cherry notes, with a hint of dried herbs, earth and smoke. Medum+ bodied with bright acidity still, along with lovely fruit showing a hint of tartness and also some dried fruit notes. Hints of earth and black tea on the finish. Enjoy this vintage for another 2-3 years.
