TASTING NOTE: This blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet was first produced in 1997. The three varieties are aged separately in small French and American oak casks for approximately 12 months before blending and bottling. Ruffino's take on the Supertuscan style delivers a silky, structured wine that will feature layered, complex ripe fruit and be ideal for grilled meats. Price $ 29.95
