Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
Ruby red with garnet hues. 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. 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. 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.
Round and juicy, this red delivers black cherry, plum, tobacco and iron flavors, with a light smoky undertone. Fluid and harmonious, with solid tannins lining the long finish. Drink now through 2028.
