A few nights ago while going through my wine inventory, I stumbled upon a bottle of 1995 Il Cavaliere Chianti Rufina Riserva. I should have been focusing on yarns and sketching a few designs. However, my “broken wrist” led me to the wine cabinet instead.
What was I to do? Well, I opened it of course…and it was a good decision. The color was in between ruby and garnet. It’s fruity bouquet hinted of cherries, blackberry and plum. It was dry but subdued and delicate, with a very pleasing finish. It definitely aged well!
