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.
Complex and subtle aromas of wet earth, mushrooms, cherries and walnuts follow through to a full-bodied yet compressed and tensioned palate. Shows length and a savory finish. Really delicious now, but will improve with age. Drink or hold.
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 ragù. The blend is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Colorino.
