Ruffino Il Ducale 2005

Date June 21, 2009 | Chuck | Italy & Red Wine & Sangiovese

Here's a great example of a Super Tuscan done right. This IGT wine is only IGT because it bent the rules slightly but it was worth it. A very close cousin to chianti, this bottle will pair well with any Italian food or bbq'd red meat. Overall it's nice and round, medium to full bodied with smooth tannins.
Blend is: 60% sangiovese, 25% merlot and 15% syrah
Tip: tulip glass

Liberty School Zinfandel 2006

Date April 2, 2009 | Chuck | Red Wine & USA & Zinfandel

When I tried their 2005 Cabernet I made a mental note to remember the name Liberty School.   I'm glad I did.
Their label sums it up nicely: "fruit-driven, soft and approachable".  The tannins are present but not overpowering which lets the drinker enjoy it on it's own or paired with food.
Tip: Released on Jan 17, 2009
