"A focused style, with cherry and plum flavors accented by a smoky note. Juicy and balanced, leaving hints of earth and tobacco on the long finish. Drink now through 2033. 15,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"The 2016 Chianti Rufina delivers a very satisfying interpretation of Sangiovese with traditional lines and gracefully tempered aromas. Wild rose and forest berry emerge from the bouquet trailed by spice, ginger and licorice. This is a versatile and non-intrusive wine to pair with white meat or baked fish." (WA)

"The 2016 Chianti Rùfina is an incredibly beautiful and polished wine. Gracious and light on its feet, with striking persistence, the 2016 is all class. Bright floral notes and silky, refined tannins add to the wine's alluring personality. What a gorgeous wine this is. Don't miss it." (VM)

"Thyme, woodland berry and floral aromas mingle with a whiff of tilled earth. The taut linear palate evokes juicy plum, Morello cherry, underbrush and tobacco alongside polished tannins and vibrant acidity. Enjoy now for its pristine fruit and precision or hold for more complexity. Drink through 2031." (WE)
