Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro 2011
James Suckling"Lots of dried berry, orange peel and ginger aromas follow through to a full body with chewy tannins. Tangy finish. Rich and delicious. Drink now."
Wine EnthusiastMade with Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, this opens with aromas of toast, espresso, sunbaked earth and mature plum. The structured palate offers black cherries marinated in spirits, vanilla, toasted oak and coffee, while firm, fine-grained tannins provide the framework.
Wine SpectatorA complex red, evoking cherry, strawberry, tobacco, tar and underbrush aromas and flavors. Harmonious and detailed, this lingers with an aftertaste of fruit, earth and woodsy notes. Drink now through 2023. 40,000 cases made.
