Romitorio di Santedame is a truly unique wine. It is a symbol of the importance which Ruffino attributes to rediscovery and development of the indiginous Tuscan varieties. Both the bouquet and the tasting profile of this wine convey the splendid nature of its home country: It is volumptious, yet soothing, rustic, yet refined. A wine with character. A unique wine.
Very deep ruby red with violet hues.
The bouquet is very fruity and surprisingly fragrant, the first approach is characterized by notes of blueberry and blackcurrant, followed by spicy sensations, mostly represented by cinnamon and nutmeg. The nose also perceives nice notes of tobacco and eucalyptus. It comes out a very intense, complex and pleasantly austere bouquet.
Full bodied and elegant, with an impressive balance between its soft and hard components: on the first side Merlot gives a nice roundness, well balanced by very elegant and melted tannins, and all of this is sustained by an important acidity. The aftertaste is very complex with notes of black fruit, spices and coffee; the persistence is incredibly long and tasty.
