James Suckling Review

Rated 94

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.



Wine Tasting Notes

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.



83% Sangiovese, 12% Merlot, 5% Colorino



Alcohol 14.5%

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. Some 336,000 bottles were produced.
