The perfect wine:

The grapes of Sangiovese, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend harmoniously in the Ruffino Chianti Classico Reserva Ducale Oro DOCG from Tuscany. The silky tannins, medium-ripe fruit with good cherry flavours and medium finish perfectly accent the Wagyu carpaccio, pickled vegetables, tuna mayonnaise of Chef Paul Dodd.
