"Rubiolo Chianti Classico is an elegant red wine, produced in large part from Sangiovese and a small amount of Merlot. The grapes come from two of the best Tuscan terroirs for the production of Chianti Classico wines, Castellina in Chianti and Panzano in Chianti. The Merlot gives elegance to this Chianti Classico, which is rich in fruitiness and suitability.The name Rubiolo refers to its dark ruby red colour." —winemaker

Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot

Wine Anthology review:
Rubiolo, named for the gemstone color of this Chianti Classico, is made in the classic style and is comprised almost entirely of Sangiovese, with a small addition of Merlot to add an exuberant fruitiness. This 2013 wowed us from the get-go, giving up appealing forward notes of sweet cherry and raspberry woven with black licorice. It is positively bursting at the seams with candied fruit and subtle floral touches, and its balanced medium body leads neatly to a silky tannic finish.
"A red with raspberry, black pepper and lemon rind character. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Beautiful density of fruit here. Best Rubiolo ever." —James Suckling

"The 2013 Chianti Classico Rubiolo is a gorgeous entry-level wine from Gagliole. Soft, fleshy and expressive, the 2013 hits all the right notes, with vibrant red cherry fruit and fabulous balance. Silky tannins add to an impression of finesse, while attractive floral and spiced notes give the wine an attractive upper register. Drinking window: 2015-2020." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2013 Chianti Classico Rubiolo offers a pure core of bright cherry fruit with cherry liqueur and candied cherry for added intensity. Besides that very obvious cherry theme, the bouquet makes room for added spice, leather and polished mineral. Rubiolo offers a very elegant and clean presentation for those who enjoy the bright flavors and crisp nuances of Chianti Classico." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
