Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Ruby red with garnet hues. The impact of the Riserva Ducale Oro 2006 is intense. At a first approach, notes of cherry, plum and violet appear very powerful; subsequently it denotes strong aromas of tobacco, chocolate, cinnamon and black pepper. On the whole, this wine shows a very complex and powerful nose.
Full-bodied, very powerful in the fruity tastes, with tannins that are elegant and well linked to a good acidity. It is characterized by pleasant sensations of sweet tobacco. The finish is particularly long and shows powerful notes of plums and more light aromas of clove.
"Licorice and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Balanced and pretty, with lovely finesse."
"Very dark ruby-red. Spiced blackcurrant, coffee and ink on the nose, with a light dusting of cracked black pepper. Shows good texture and very good sweetness to its dark fruit, coffee and licorice flavors. Finishes smooth and long, but with mounting tannins and bit of alcoholic warmth. A very-well made wine that deserves an outstanding score, but I miss the penetratingly pure quality and red fruit aromas and flavors of past great vintages of this wine, such as the 1988 and 1990."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
