Critical Acclaim

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 19th Sep 2019

"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." (90 pts.)

WE92 Wine Enthusiast 4/1/2020

"Made with 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Colorino, this opens with alluring aromas that evoke iris, dark-skinned berry, sunbaked earth and leather. The structured palate delivers dried black cherry, cranberry jam, licorice and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Enjoy 2021–2029." (92 pts.)

JS94 JamesSuckling.com Thursday, November 7, 2019

"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." (94 pts.)

Tuscany

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

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.
