Ruffino Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva 1996
from Tuscany, Italy
By the time it is released, Riserva Ducale is a glorious blend of youth and maturity, expressing ripe fruit aromas and tastes, as well as characteristics such as leather and cedar, developed during aging. Its velvety texture, full body and complexity mark it as a truly superior Chianti Classico Riserva. A full-bodied Chianti Classico, Riserva Ducale is best enjoyed with the traditional meats of Tuscany, especially roasts and game.

A kick-in-the-pants Chianti, an ok choice, but there are better choices, like the Antinori Riserva, which tastes much different so it's tough to compare. The Ruffino is darker and yummy enough for those who like a stronger Chianti with less fruit and more woody flavors.
