Ruffino Chianti Classico Ris.Ducale 2007

Ruffino Chianti Classico Ris.Ducale 750ml 2007     
Sku: 11541

Riserva Ducale Oro, produced for the first time in 1947, is an evolution of the wine Riserva Ducale, which saw the light in 1927. There are no words to describe exactly how much this wine means to Ruffino. Riserva Ducale Oro is a modern classic. It tells the tale of the quality evolution which has characterised the last 50 years of Italy’s fine wine production. Riserva Ducale Oro has a distinctive style, recognizable through the decades of the twentieth century. It conveys the ancient traditions of its homeland. This wine is an intrical part of the history of the people of Chianti Classico. Its nature reflects their strong character, their innate will to find new challenges, and their passion for the extraordinary territory which is their home.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Jun 2012)
The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro is a big, rich wine. Tobacco, cedar, spices dried flowers and dried cherries are all woven together nicely in the 2007. There is plenty of depth and richness in the glass, but aromas and flavors are already a touch forward, which suggests the 2007 isn’t going to be especially long-lived. Still, the 2007 comes across as slightly less overwrought than some previous vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
