Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico DOCG 2002
From its first years of production Riserva Ducale has become synonymous with fine Chianti, and it has played a leading role in the development of the privileged position which Tuscan quality wines hold throughout the world today. In many markets this Riserva has in fact transcended its category and become known simply as "Riserva Ducale". It has managed to preserve its excellent reputation through time, thanks to Ruffino's commitment to cultivating the finest Sangiovese grapes on the slopes of the Chianti Classico hills.
Food Pairings for Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico DOCG
- Color: Ruby red with garnet hues - Aroma: 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. - Tasting profile: 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 characterized 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.
