Riserva Ducale


  • Grape Variety: Sangiovese
  • Drink: 2013 - 2019



Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Herby, dried fruit nose. Big sweet tannins, chunky texture, good solid length. Some personality and punchy impact.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Light, discreet nose with nothing apparent from aromas. The structure of the wine is good with nice interplay of tannins and acid, but the flavours of this wine disappear. A gentle and ripe Chianti Riserva, not over worked or extracted. I think it will age gracefully.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Delicate, fragrant nose, mineral notes, restrained, traditional, slightly sappy character with a shortage of fruit and dusty tannins. Attractive, correct, simple.
