Ruffino Toscana Romitorio di Santedame 2006

Ruffino Toscana Romitorio di Santedame 750ml 2006      
Sku: 1682370*

Almost 20 years have passed since the first vintage of Romitorio di Santedame - 20 years since Ruffino started its experiments with the extraordinary Colorino on the Santedame Estate. Ruffino was the first Tuscan company to dedicate time and effort to this red grape variety. Romitorio di Santedame is a truly unique wine. It is a symbol of the importance which Ruffino attributes to rediscovery and development of the indiginous Tuscan varieties. Both the bouquet and the tasting profile of this wine convey the splendid nature of its home country: It is volumptious, yet soothing, rustic, yet refined. A wine with character. A unique wine.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Oct 2010)
The 2006 Romitorio di Santedame, 60% Colorino, 40% Merlot, flows from the glass with layers of mineral-infused dark fruit, earthiness and new leather. Though a touch inward today, this powerful red seems to have plenty of potential for the future. The finish is long, clean and nicely articulated. This is by far the best of the new releases from Ruffino. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
