Here's a Quicky

Ruffino Chianti, 2004, DOCG

Italian Chianti is really a hit or miss, especially in this price range. The DOCG is supposed to designate a certain quality standard but it is loosely observed. This wine was a miss, although Ruffino does make some nicer Chianti in a higher price bracket.

It is a very light wine, almost looks like a Pinot Noir, and has a bit of the Chianti earth in the nose and thats about it. Hardly any body and no tannin. I am saving the bottle for some much needed cooking wine. (I never have any around, it all gets drunk.)
