Producing the best Tuscan wines means having access to the best vineyards. With this in mind, Ruffino has, over the years, assembled a collection of top estates in Tuscany's most important fine wine appellations. Starting with the best quality fruit, Ruffino wines reveal themselves without coaxing or manipulation. This is the essence of Ruffino's traditional approach to making wine. Il Ducale shows notes of cassis, cherries, plums, and chocolate, which then fade into aromas of vanilla, tobacco, eucalyptus, and spice. The wine opens with fruit-driven notes. Perfect accompaniment to herb-roasted chicken, sun-dried tomato risotto, and beef carpaccio.
