One of the most classic Sangioveses to date. Very elegant and delicate wild berry taste with a pinch of light spice. Subtle at first but any amazing pair with any meaty Italian red sauce. Must try.

I picked up this bottle to give my wife a taste of Chianti before our trip to Italy this summer. It is a nice simple wine to have with dessert and I enjoyed it - her? not so much.

Expected more of this wine. Finish too acidic for our taste.

첫시음은 낯설다는기분 Sangiovese 이기때문인가? 두번 세번 drinking 할수록 친숙해지며 고급스런 맛을 드러냄 성처럼 단단한 느낌

Smooth bouquet with sharper complex berry pallate, and long acidity citris(lemony even grapefruit) finish. Bold and drinks well now with sharp flavors; look forward to buying more and seeing how it develops...

Lean but polished, with a narrow band of flavors. Picks up on the finish enough to suggest it might be best after 1995.

Blueberry and mineral aromas, with hints of new wood. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a rich core of raspberry fruit and lemony acidity. Best after 2009.

Two years of oak aging produces a full-flavored Chianti Classico with flavors and aromas of red plum, cherry skin, new saddle leather and damp earth. With its easily recognized tan label, this Chianti Classico will please even the most discriminating Italian wine lovers.

Light in color and texture, this high toned Chianti offers mature chestnut and coffee scents. Decant a bottle for fuzi with veal.

Full-bodied, very powerful in the fruity tastes, with tannins that are elegant and well linked to a good acidity. The final is characterized by pleasant sensations of sweet tobacco. The aftertaste is particularly long and shows powerful notes of plums and

Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2006 - Ruffino: Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2006 - Rotwein von RuffinoDer Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2006 von Ruffino ist ein Synonym für feinsten Chianti. Der Kernzone des Classico entspringend, wird der Wein aus einer sorgfältigen Auslese der besten Trauben hergestellt. Diese Trauben wachsen in Ruffinos Weingärten Santedame, Montemasso und Gretole heran.Dieser Wein zeigt ein intensives Rubinrot im Glas. Der 2006er Riserva Ducale besitzt ein besonders intensiv duftendes Bukett mit Aromen süßer Kirschen und von roten Beeren. Sie treffen auf feinwürzige Noten von Zigarrenkästchen und weiße Pfefferkörner sowie den eleganten Duft roter Rosen, untermalt von Flintstein. Der Wein wirkt sehr ausgeglichen im Geschmack, fruchtig, harmonisch mit samtartigen Tanninen und einer angenehmen Würze. Spuren von Kakao und Nelken gesellen sich dank der exzellenten Eichenholzreife zu den dominanten Fruchtaromen. Im Abgang erscheinen Noten von Feigen und Rosmarin. Sanft klingen diese in einem schön lang anhaltendem Finale aus.In Edelstahltanks, deren Temperatur ständig zwischen 26 und 28 ° C gehalten wird, erfolgt die zehntägige alkoholische Gärung. Der Saft der Trauben lagert weitere zwei Wochen auf den Häuten. Nach der malolaktischen Gärung lagert die Riserva für 24 Monate im Fass, ein Teil in 40/80 hl. Eichenfässern, der andere in rostfreien Stahl- und Zementfässern. Zuletzt reift dieser Wein drei Monate auf Flaschen aus.    Weingut: RuffinoLand: ItalienRegion: ToskanaRebsorten: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon und MerlotInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol.%Fassreife: in Barriques gereift (24 Monate) Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Italien > Toskana

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Ruby red with garnet hues. The bouquet is typical for Chianti Classico wines with inviting floral and fruity notes intertwining with the spicy touch deriving from the long ageing period in oak barrels. Notes of plums and cherries are followed by hints of sweet tobacco and cocoa, creating an elegant and long-lasting bouquet. The taste is very well-balanced and features all the virtues of oak aged Sangiovese. The tannins are sweet and velvety, the acidity is inviting and fragrant and the fruity notes lead towards a long, delicious aftertaste of berry fruits and cassis. Elegant and medium-bodied, the palate is characterised by sweet notes of mature fruit which blend beautifully with the soft tannins and the acidity. The after-taste is typical for Sangiovese with hints of hazelnuts and leather.
