89 points for Rubiolo 2011 by Wine Advocate

The 2011 Chianti Classico Rubiolo (90-10 Sangiovese and Merlot) is a dark and concentrated expression with thick tones of red fruit, dried blackberry, leather, candied apple skin and crushed white pepper. It delivers surprising richness and persistency with the fresh acidity for easy pairings with cheesy pasta or over-roasted lasagna. Rubiolo is a great value choice. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017.
