The nose showed dark, spicy red fruits with hints of mint and floral undergrowth. On the palate, it was tight and densely packed with flavors of cherry, minerals and floral tones. The finish showed the wine’s structure as it turned lean and drying. I would put this in the cellar for another three to four years before tasting again.

This is elegant, with a core of cherry and a supporting cast of licorice, leather and black tea notes. Starts out supple, ending with a chewy texture. Drink now through 2016. 75,000 cases imported.

There are no words to describe exactly how much this wine means to Ruffino. Riserva Ducale Oro is a modern classic. Riserva Ducale Oro has a distinctive style, recognizable through the decades of the twentieth century.

This special commemorative bottle celebrates the 60th anniversary (1947–2007) of one of Italy’s flagship wines. The characteristic aromas of Sangiovese come through loud and clear in the form of bright pulses of wild berry, blue flower, light spice and dried tobacco. The wine is bright and tight on the finish. Hold this bottle in your cellar.

This has an almost roasted nose, and offers dark plum, leather, chocolate and earth flavors. Rich and powerful, yet stays focused, with fine balance and a lingering finish. Best from 2013 through 2022.

Rich and powerful, yet stays focused, with fine balance and a lingering finish. Best from 2013 through 2022. 33,300 cases made. -BS The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro is a big, rich wine. Tobacco, cedar, spices dried flowers and dried cherries are all woven together nicely in the 2007. There is plenty of depth and richness in the glass, but aromas and flavors are already a touch forward, which suggests the 2007 isn't going to be especially long-lived. Still, the 2007 comes across as slightly less overwrough...

Colour: Ruby red with garnet hues Aroma: A very classic Chianti Classico bouquet with notes of violets, cherries, plums and inviting spicy sensations. It is elegant and lush, inviting yet subtle, featuring all the distinctive characters of a great Chianti Classico. Tasting profile: Full bodied, with a generous, fruity core, where the notes of cherries and small berry fruits intertwine with sensations of Mediterranean herbs, such as rosemary and thyme, and hints of oak. The alcohol is well-integrated in the structure and the tannins are impressive, yet round and soft. The aftertaste is very long and reminiscent of violets, nutmeg, plums and sweet tobacco.


Winemaker's Notes:

The estate's flagship Chianti is, as expected, a much more serious wine. It offers notable intensity in its sweet dark cherries, smoke and underbrush with a masculine, somewhat wild personality.
