2005 Ruffino Chianti Superiore Il Leo
Color: Ruby red Aroma: Vibrant and generous. The first, flowery impressions are reminiscent of sweet violet, followed by hints of cherry and red berries with delicate spicy tones of vanilla and cloves, due to the aging in wood. The finish is elegant and impressive with notes of nutmeg. Tasting profile: The attractive smoothness of the taste is a result of a good balance between tannin profile, alcohol and fruity body. The length on the palate is noteworthy with fragrant fruity notes.
