Ruffino Chianti Virtual Tasting: The Recap
Here’s a recipe for you: An incomparably rich winemaking history, distinctive terroir, the blood of Jove with just a dash of Colorino, paired with a bowl of finely crafted ragù. Combine this (and more) and what do you get? A line-up of world-class Ruffino Chianti tasted with its esteemed winemaker Gabriele Tacconi and Snooth’s Christy Canterbury, MW. These two wine rock stars sat down together last week for Ruffino’s highly-anticipated Virtual Tasting on Snooth. In the audience of wine industry influencers and wine lovers alike, Gabriele and Christy tasted and talked about Ruffino’s history, the magic of Sangiovese, and the piece de resistance: the Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2010.

    This was the most gratifying virtual tasting. Mr. Tacconi was at the top of his game. In addition to the wonderful wines, he delivered a wealth of knowledge.

    Zin1 speaks truth. This was an outstanding VT.

  • Gabriele had a great attitude and was very engaging...his passion for Chianti is obvious. Christy gets big points for moderation and for keeping things animated. Also got a kick out of Gabriele calling the wines "foodish", I've been using it in conversations since then. Salut!
