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.

On the palate, the wine has well-defined structure and a generous, fruity core accented by hints of chocolate, cinnamon and spicy hints of black pepper.

Winemaker's Notes:

Riserva Ducale Oro undergoes a long ageing period in botti, the traditional Tuscan ageing casks. It is an extraordinarily complex Chianti Classico Riserva featuring a solid structure and elegant perfumes - a truly golden wine.
