2004 Tenuta Santedame Ruffino Chianti Classico: Success!


sept. 3, 2009: the meal failed miserably. turns out throwing a bunch of homegrown acidic tomatoes into a saucepan with garlic, onions, sweet italian sausage and a good amount of seasonings turns into a nice soup. but: the wine recommendation from dennis at winetree was perfectly played. this 13.5 percent has a high amount of tannins; it definitely had that cheek-pucker. but we decanted it for a half hour, and the effect was really good. we'd get this again, especially with a meal that is highly acidic. this santedame estate is located near the village of castellina in chianti, in the heart of the chianti classico area, according to snooth.com. about $27 at winetree.
