Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro Chianti Classico Riserva 1999
from Tuscany, Italy
The ripe, luscious nose shows intriguing hints of violets and iris, berry fruit, chocolate and smoke. In the mouth, it is rich, complex and elegant, with excellent fruit-acid balance and remarkable depth and length. The overriding impression is of velvety richness. Ruffino Riserva Ducale Gold is a ""vino di meditazione,"" a wine so compelling that it deserves the singular attention of the taster, undistracted by food. But, it is also an excellent wine to accompany richly flavored foods such as roasts and game.

A Customer - Cincinnati
One of the best Chianti's ever produced, in my opinion. Fantastic ripeness and dryness compliment a surprisingly large body.
