By the time it is released, Riserva Ducale is a glorious blend of youth and maturity, expressing ripe fruit aromas and tastes, as well as characteristics such as leather and cedar, developed during aging. Its velvety texture, full body and complexity mark it as a truly superior Chianti Classico Riserva. A full-bodied Chianti Classico, Riserva Ducale is best enjoyed with the traditional meats of Tuscany, especially roasts and game.
