Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro 2011

SKU 28500


Riserva Ducale Oro's distinctive Tuscan bouquet offers notes of violet, cherry and plum. This wine has a well-defined structure and a generous, fruity core accented by hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Full bodied and well balanced, Riserva Ducale Oro has round yet impressive tannins that lead to a lengthy finish. Riserva Ducale Oro pairs exquisitely with traditional Italian dishes such as pasta Bolognese, wild boar ragù, and eggplant Parmesan. It's also wonderful with classic American dishes such as grilled ribeye and roasted vegetables.

James Suckling"Lots of dried berry, orange peel and ginger aromas follow through to a full body with chewy tannins. Tangy finish. Rich and delicious. Drink now."

Wine SpectatorA complex red, evoking cherry, strawberry, tobacco, tar and underbrush aromas and flavors. Harmonious and detailed, this lingers with an aftertaste of fruit, earth and woodsy notes. Drink now through 2023. 40,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastMade with Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, this opens with aromas of toast, espresso, sunbaked earth and mature plum. The structured palate offers black cherries marinated in spirits, vanilla, toasted oak and coffee, while firm, fine-grained tannins provide the framework.
