Item Description

Vinous Media 90
"(90% sangiovese, 5% canaiolo nero and 5% colorino): Good bright, full red. High-pitched aromas of tangy red and darker berries and violet are complemented by lower-toned earth and flint notes. Boasts terrific volume and purity for an entry-level Chianti: juicy and fruit-driven, with raspberry fruit complicated by minerality. Finishes bright, flinty and long. This Rufina estate is fast becoming one of the best sources for affordable Chiantis that really speak of sangiovese and the cooler Rufina terroir."

"This Chianti Rufina which is produced from Sangiovese grapes accurately selected in our vineyards, reflects the typical style of the territory taking the name of the Farm as its symbol."

Fattoria Lavacchio Chianti Rufina

"One of my favorite wines. I like to share this with people who don't think they like Chianti and when they taste their mind is changed."

Carol

Great chianti at a reasonable price

"Go to" wine for home

"A nice, well balanced Chianti. Smooth finish, medium nose, tannins somewhat rounded. Would recommend as a good table wine. Probably have to spend considerably more to get a better wine than this."

James

Good Value

Allan

Dull and acidic

"Not a lot of flavor--I'm a fan of Chianti Classico, so I thought I would also try one of the other Chiantis. not awful, but also not a good drink."
