Degustation notes

Very intense ruby-violet colour, a very pronounced fruity nose with a surge of raspberry and elderberry aromas, notes of violets and cedar wood, a handsome and pleasant fullness, already almost round and harmonious, evident tannins at the finish.

Special notes

The Chianti Riserva Ducale is an extension of the "Ruffino Chianti" produced since the early 20th century. It owes its name to the Duke of Aosta, one of the first and most famous admirers of Ruffino wines. At the end of the 19th century, the wine producer Ruffino was named as the exclusive supplier of the estate by the Duke of Aosta, who presented him with a ducal certificate in recognition of his appreciation.

    Sonnige Toscana 🍷 - Wir kennen den "Ruffino" seit Jahren und schätzen ihn sehr. Die neue Lieferung haben wir noch nicht probiert, sind aber überzeugt, dass auch dieser Wein grossartig schmeckt!

    Schade - Dieser Wein hält nicht was er verspricht. Kein Geschmack, kein Abgang, enttäuschend.

    Kompliment - Guter Wein. Preis-Leistung stimmt wenn man ihn zum richtigen Essen trinkt. Kommt aber nicht an meinen NIPOZZANO VECHIE VITI RISERVA von Marchesi de Frescobaldi heran.
