Ruby red in color, with garnet hues. Riserva Ducale Oro 2007 shows the distinctive Tuscan bouquet of a great Chianti Classico Riserva with notes of violet, cherry, plum and spice. On the palate, the wine has well-defined structure and a generous, fruity core accented by hints of chocolate, cinnamon and spicy hints of black pepper. Full-bodied and well-balanced with powerful fruity notes, Riserva Ducale Oro's round yet impressive tannins support a good acidity and lead into a lengthy finish featuring notes of plum, clove and sweet tobacco.
Riserva Ducale Oro is the ultimate expression of Chianti Classico Riserva. Choose a traditional pairing with Italian dishes such as beef braciole, lasagna Bolognese, or manicotti.
Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 20% combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
