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.

Rating
2006: 90 Points - Ian d'Agata, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Very dark ruby-red. Spiced blackcurrant, coffee and ink on the nose, with a light dusting of cracked black pepper. Shows good texture and very good sweetness to its dark fruit, coffee and licorice flavors. Finishes smooth and long, but with mounting tannins and bit of alcoholic warmth. A very-well made wine that deserves an outstanding score, but I miss the penetratingly pure quality and red fruit aromas and flavors of past great vintages of this wine, such as the 1988 and 1990."

2009: 90 Points - James Suckling, Wine Spectator: "Licorice and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Balanced and pretty, with lovely finesse."
