Ruffino Il Ducale 2017
Ruby red with violet reflections. Il Ducale shows notes of cassis, cherries, plums, and chocolate, which then fade into aromas of vanilla, tobacco, vanilla, eucalyptus, and spice. The wine opens with fruit-driven notes that unfold into round, elegant tannins. This well-balanced wine finishes with ripe fruits and aromas of vanilla and balsamic herbs. Il Ducale is a modern Tuscan wine born from Ruffino's century-old winemaking traditions. Il Ducale is the perfect accompaniment to herb-roasted chicken, sun-dried tomato risotto, and beef carpaccio. It also pairs beautifully with tomato bruschetta, Parmigiano Reggiano, or Pecorino Romano cheeses for Italian-inspired entertaining.
