Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro 2012

SKU 8122


Riserva Ducale Oro's distinctive Tuscan bouquet offers notes of violet, cherry and plum. This wine has a well-defined structure and a generous, fruity core accented by hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Full bodied and well balanced, Riserva Ducale Oro has round, impressive tannins that lead to a lengthy finish. Pairing: Riserva Ducale Oro pairs exquisitely with traditional Italian dishes such as pasta Bolognese, wild boar ragù, and eggplant Parmesan. It's also wonderful with classic American dishes such as grilled ribeye and roasted vegetables.

Wine SpectatorCherry fruit fills the core of this red, with toasty oak notes mellowing. Firmly structured, ending with a solid, slightly austere finish. Drink now through 2023. 35,500 cases made.

Wine AdvocateI'm not sure where fruit for this wine is harvested (if it is indeed harvested in one place) and have therefore not listed a comune name in the appellation field. The 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Riserva Ducale Oro is a robust and sturdy interpretation that is aged in oak for 36 months. The blend is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a thickly concentrated effort that supplies a healthy dose of dark fruit and oak-driven flavors of spice and toast. Some 390,000 bottles were produced.
