I Veroni Chianti Rufina La Rusticola 2018
Need a blast of Tuscan sunshine, rolling hills, sunsets, magic and love in your life? Of course you do, we ALL do! Well, we GOT it -- the 2018 Chianti Rufina “Rusticola” is HERE, fresh off the container from Italy! Woo hoo! 50% OFF?! Priced to drink ON THE DAILY! Certified organic, racy, lip-smacking, rich and warm Chianti Rufina at its finest! We just wish we had more…
We are SO lucky to have discovered I Veroni when we did (right before they started crushing it with the critics) and it has been a Last Bottle uber-fave for many years. WHY? HUGELY overdelivering is why...these wines SING and are so crazily well-priced...ask someone who’s bought from us….they KNOW the deal!
Drink this immediately when it hits your office, porch, whatever. $15??!! Fun fact: “La Rusticola” is named for the woodcocks that arrive from Russia every winter in this part of Italy, often called by Italians “the Queen of the forest”.
I VERONI, of course, is one of the very top Rufina estates (dating back to the 1500s!!), and this wine is made by none other than super-consultant Andrea Paoletti (ever heard of rockstar Super Tuscans Ornellaia and Tignanello??!) and winemaker/agronomist Paola De Blasi --we are blown away to have it priced like this. SO GOOD! Get it -- while we have it!
This is DARK Chianti! Deep! So perfumey of ripe cherries and plums and spices! Man, you are going to DIG this - for our price it’s amazing. Cherries for days, fresh and dried, ripe, warm, notes of cinnamon and blood orange, even a bit of cocoa, this is simply one of the biggest overachievers we have ever had from I Veroni, and we’ve had ‘em all!! Madness! Buy as much as you can before it disappears...
Free ground shipping on 6 or more bottles.
Why LA RUSTICOLA ? RUSTICOLA is the Latin name ( Scolopax Rusticola ) of a very fashionable and wild bird that is called in English: "WOODCOCK ", the reason we select this name is because the vineyard where we produce the grapes for this wine are very closed to a very humid forest area where during winter time many Woodcocks arrive flying and spend some days looking for earthworms ( they only eat this particular kind of warms )
