Tasting Notes and Description

Ruffino Il Ducale Toscana is a testament to the innovative spirit and the rich heritage of the Ruffino winery, a name that has been associated with quality Tuscan wine since its establishment in 1877. Il Ducale represents a more modern expression of the Tuscan terroir, blending traditional Tuscan grapes with international varieties to create a wine that is both distinctive and reflective of Ruffino's commitment to excellence. This wine is a thoughtful composition of Sangiovese, the quintessential Tuscan varietal, enriched with Merlot and Syrah, which contribute depth, complexity, and a velvety texture. The result is a harmonious and versatile wine that encapsulates the innovation within the bounds of tradition, a hallmark of Ruffino's winemaking philosophy. Il Ducale is aged in a combination of oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, a process that carefully balances the wine's fruit characteristics with subtle spice and oak notes, enhancing its overall structure and elegance.

In the glass, Ruffino Il Ducale Toscana presents a rich ruby color with hints of purple, signaling its vibrant and robust character. The nose is greeted with an intricate bouquet of ripe red and black fruits, such as cherries, blackberries, and plums, beautifully interwoven with nuances of violet, spices, and a touch of oak-derived vanilla and toast. On the palate, this wine impresses with its medium to full body, showcasing a perfect alignment of fruit richness, smooth tannins, and a well-judged acidity that leads to a balanced and long-lasting finish. Il Ducale's complexity and elegance make it an ideal companion to a wide array of culinary delights, from traditional Tuscan dishes like pappardelle al cinghiale (wild boar pasta) and bistecca alla fiorentina (Florentine steak) to international cuisine that requires a wine with character and adaptability. Its approachable yet sophisticated profile ensures that Ruffino Il Ducale Toscana is suited for both casual meals and more formal dining occasions, offering a contemporary taste of Tuscany's winemaking innovation while staying true to the region's storied heritage.
