Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro Chianti Classico 2014
A wine fit for royalty! The Riserva Ducale Oro traces its majestic roots back to 1890 when Ruffino was appointed the official wine supplier to the Duke of Aosta and the Italian Royal Court. In appreciation, Ruffino named an aged Chianti after the duke, calling it “Riserva Ducale” (“Reserved for the Duke”), as it was first labeled in their cellars the previous century; in 1947 Ruffino introduced a more exclusive version: Riserva Ducale Oro (‘gold label’) Chianti Classico, which today is a Gran Selezione- the newest designation in the Chianti Classico region. Only produced in exceptional years, the wine is full-bodied and powerfully fruity with elegant tannins perfectly supported by a good acidity.
