Chianti Superiore Il Leo, Ruffino

Chianti Superiore Il Leo, Ruffino

Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes from selected vineyards respecting the low yields of the Classico region. After the fermentation, the wine is aged for around five months, partially in French oak barrels prior to bottling. Il Leo has vibrant and generous aromas reminiscent of violet and cherry with a well-balanced palate; positioned between a traditional rustic Chianti and a modern fruit-led style of wine.
