Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico2007
While, for ineluctable reasons, this particular bottle is unavailable in PA, it sells nationallt for a huge gamut of prices, all the way from $50 down to an incredibly cheap $10. It's a fine bottle, the Tuscan San Giovesee nearly at its best. It is substantial, oaky, and and rich bodied, with, however, just a slight bitterness in the finish, attesting to the fact that this was not a great year.
