Brilliant ruby red with purplish highlights, this wine is intense and persistent, with fresh aromas of cherries, violets and red currants, followed by subtle, spicy nuances. Artfully- structured with balanced tannins and a lingering aromatic finish. The hints of forest fruits and cherries that characterise the varietal make it an easily approachable wine while still rendering it intense and elegant.

Wine Advocate

A gorgeous entry-level offering, the 2011 Rubio is a pretty, fresh, vinous wine to drink over the next few years. Sweet black cherries, spices and violets all jump from the glass in this exuberant, flashy Sangiovese. Readers looking for a delicious, value-priced Tuscan red will find much to like here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.

Score: 88. —Antonio Galloni, June 2013.
