Ruby red in color, with garnet hues. Riserva Ducale Oro 2004 shows typical Tuscan characteristics with violet, cherry, and plum aromas and hints of white pepper. On the palate, this benchmark of fine Chianti Classico has a massive structure and an elegant, fruity core accented by rosemary and thyme. Full-bodied and well balanced, Riserva Ducale Oro's sweet, round tannins lead into a long finish with notes of violets, nutmeg, plums, and sweet tobacco.
A burst of red cherries on the palate with a subtle hint of spice. This vintage provides a smooth and lingering finish. Definitely a must for those who enjoy a full-bodied, yet hauntingly smooth Chianti!
