Critical Acclaim

RP92+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Oct 2016

"Beautifully balanced and bright, the 2013 Chianti Rufina Riserva is a spectacular wine from the talented folks at I Veroni. I love the silky and zesty approach and the high quality of its cherry, wild berry and underbrush aromas. Winemaking has been tweaked over the years to produce these very successful results. The wine is fermented on ambient yeasts in cement tanks and cone-shaped oak fermenters. It is aged in both French barrique and large Slavonian oak casks for 18 months. Some 40,000 bottles are made." (92+ pts.)

WE92 Wine Enthusiast 4/1/2017

"Made entirely from organically grown Sangiovese, this opens with red plum, new leather and underbrush aromas. The full-bodied palate delivers crushed raspberry, black cherry, pipe tobacco and a hint of black pepper, with polished tannins providing backbone. Drink through 2022." (92 pts.)

Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
