Rubio Toscana IGT 2016

Rubio is a youthful and fresh red made from Sangiovese Grosso grapes grown in the hillside vineyards of Montalcino. Fermentation in stainless steel follows a brief, but intense, period of maceration. The final bottling retains all of the fresh fruit character while delivering excellent color and flavor extraction.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant ruby-red with purple hues, this wine has intense aromas of red cherries, violets and currants, followed by a hint of spice. Well-structured and balanced on the palate, Rubio is easy-going and versatile, but also notable for its intensity and elegance.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with antipasti, tapas, pasta dishes with tomato sauces, and grilled sausages.
