Ruby red with garnet hues. The wine expresses a distinctive Tuscan bouquet of violet, cherry, and plum, with aromas of chocolate and spice. Intense aromas of violet, blackberry, cherry, and ripe plum with intriguing notes of cinnamon and clove. Classic elegance and structure in which the fruit, tannins, and spices form a tightly woven balance, with a lingering finish of chocolate and coffee. 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.

Made with 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Colorino, this opens with alluring aromas that evoke iris, dark-skinned berry, sunbaked earth and leather. The structured palate delivers dried black cherry, cranberry jam, licorice and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Enjoy 2021-2029.

The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Riserva Ducale Oro shows some signs of the summer heat with scorched earth, black olive and rosemary essence. The intensity of the primary fruit fades slightly to the back now that we are four years after the harvest. This mid-weight wine is slightly more textured in terms of tannins and mouthfeel. Pair it with a porcini ravioli and a sausage rag├╣. The blend is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Colorino.
