Critical Acclaim

JS91 Thursday, August 20, 2015

"Lots of dried berry, orange peel and ginger aromas follow through to a full body with chewy tannins. Tangy finish. Rich and delicious. Drink now." (91 pts.)

SP90 Wine Spectator Apr 30, 2016

"A complex red, evoking cherry, strawberry, tobacco, tar and underbrush aromas and flavors. Harmonious and detailed, this lingers with an aftertaste of fruit, earth and woodsy notes. Drink now through 2023. 40,000 cases made." (90 pts.)

WE90 Wine Enthusiast 6/1/2016

"Made with Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, this opens with aromas of toast, espresso, sunbaked earth and mature plum. The structured palate offers black cherries marinated in spirits, vanilla, toasted oak and coffee, while firm, fine-grained tannins provide the framework." (90 pts.)

WS90 Wine & Spirits April 1, 2016

"With the 2010 vintage, Ducale Oro Riserva gained Gran Selezione status. Harvested from galestro-rich soils in Castellina, the wine includes 20 percent cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Notes of clove, anise and coffee accent flavors of plum and cherry. Its dry and balanced finish would play well with the richness of slow-roasted pork shoulder." (90 pts.)


There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
