Ruffino Presents was Snooth's first Virtual Tasting of 2015! With a history dating back to 1877, Ruffino is an iconic Tuscan winery that has always embraced a unique balance of tradition and innovation in their winemaking style. We learned about Chianti Classico and sampled the wines of this 138 year-old Winery. Master of Wine Christy Canterbury was joined by Winemaker Gabriele Tacconi in an hour long tasting session featuring the following fabulous Ruffino Wines:
- Ruffino Chianti DOCG 2013 ($10)
- Ruffino Aziano Chianti Classico DOCG 2012 ($14)
- Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2011 ($23)
- Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2010 ($33)

Suffice it to say, these are excellent examples of this region's wines and it was a delight to taste our way through the hierarchy. Gabriele Tacconi is funny and informative, with some good suggestions on pairings to go along with the wines (hint, you can't go wrong with ragú).
