Color: Ruby red with garnet hues. Aroma: Powerfully aromatic with cherry, plum, and tobacco with notes of eucalyptus, chocolate, and spicy white pepper. Complexity of expression authentic to Sangiovese and Chianti Classico. Taste: Full-bodied and powerfully fruity with elegant tannins perfectly supported by a good acidity. The finish is characterized by pleasantly sweet tobacco, plums, and balsamic herbs. Food Pairing: Riserva Ducale Oro pairs exquisitely with traditional Italian dishes such as pasta Bolognese, wild boar ragu, and eggplant Parmesan. It's also wonderful with classic American dishes such as grilled ribeye and roasted vegetables.

Wine SpectatorThis is bright, featuring iron, loamy earth and sweet spice notes flanking the core of berry fruit. Shows tension and fine length, with all the components in the right place. Drink now through 2029.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Riserva Ducale Oro offers dark and ripe fruit that spreads over the palate with silky intensity. This is a mid-weight red wine from a cool vintage. It exhibits impressive aromatic intensity with a compact mouthfeel that is moderate in weight and length. Forest berry and tart berry is followed by oak spice and cured tobacco.
