Station Plaza Wine
Packaged with its distinctive yellow label, the Ruffino 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale opens to a lean raspberry or ruby color with bright aromas of tart cherry and wild plum. This is a recognized, well-traveled wine and a mini-ambassador for Chianti Classico around the world. The reasons for the wine's popularity are directly linked to the varietal purity and Tuscan personality on display.
A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this opens with aromas of new leather, blue flowers and sunbaked earth. On the rounded palate, polished tannins accompany dried cherry, licorice and a hint of grilled herb. Drink through 2023.
