~~You won’t see which wineries are behind this top-notch Chianti. What you can see is the name of the winemaker who brought you the deal. The dense cherry and plum fruit, framed by an enticing lick of oak were brought to you by Paolo Masi. Many of you will know him as the local medal-winning Tuscan star recently awarded the Trophy as the best Sangiovese winemaker in the world. You will also see Rufina on the label, the smallest and most sought after of Chianti’s seven regions because of the rich, age-worthy reds its hilltop vineyards produce. Paolo used Sangiovese from his top estate here and persuaded neighbours to donate some of their best fruit to make this hush, hush, rich taste of Chianti Rufina. As delicious with pork as with bolognese.
