Wine of the Month: Chianti Rufina DOCG 2006 Fattoria Cerreto Libri

>> Thursday, September 24, 2009

This month’s wine by Åsa: Chianti Rufina DOCG 2006 Fattoria Cerreto Libri
A spicy wine with long after-taste. On the palate you have distinct notes of violet, warm and ripe black currants and a touch of vanilla. The colour is deep red, with flashes of ruby if the light is right. It has an astonishing long after taste. It’s made from 90% sangiovese and 10% canaiolo. It is macerated in concrete vats. Only natural yeasts are used. It is aged for 18 months in barrel and four months in bottle before release. The producer is a small bio-dynamic winery not far from the village Rufina, just north of Florence. They make some 8000 bottles of this wine. Approximate price: 13 euro.
