Alauda is produced only in exceptional vintage years, representing Ruffino’s artisan approach
to winemaking. This inaugural vintage is no exception.
Color: A deep, rich red plum with hints of violet.
Aroma: Intense aromas of ripe red fruits with complex secondary aromatics of balsamic and vanilla.
Tasting Profile: An elegant full-bodied wine, Alauda is a harmonious sum of its parts. Rich with varietal
flavors of plum and cherry from the Merlot and layered with ripe berry flavors from the Cabernet
Franc, and unique balsamic and dark chocolate notes from the Colorino. The extended oak aging
process integrates the blend while providing tertiary flavors of sweet spice and soft, elegant tannins,
for a lingering finish. This wine will age gracefully for decades.
