"Ruffino’s most famous label is the gold-label Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale, first produced in 1947. The 2001 rendition capably maintains the tradition, combining coffee, prune and tobacco scents with flavors of ripe plums and dark earth. Tannins give a richly textured feel in the mouth, the drying finish balanced by ample fruit."

2010 Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva

"Sangiovese with 10% Merlot, the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori opens with a two-fold delivery of espresso grits and pressed red rose that give this wine a rather unique personality. The mouthfeel is bright and well-defined with cherry and dried raspberry that do a lot to sharpen the mouthfeel of this balanced Chianti Classico Riserva."

2009 Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Gold Label

"Intense ruby red. Riserva Ducale is a timeless Tuscan Chianti Classico that wine gives off initial violet-floral aromas, along with sweet cherry and red berry fruit notes. This is followed by delicately savory notes, hints of tobacco, white pepper, and a touch of flint. Well balanced and medium-bodied on the palate, the taste reveals deep, elegant tannins, firm acidity, and a lingering finish of rosemary and figs."

2009 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia

"The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia ... shows elements of both a cold year in its mid-weight structure and a warmer vintage in its radiant fruit, a combination that represents an attractive stylistic middle ground. I very much like the sense of energy and intensity here. Bright acidity and youthful tannins frame the supple fruit. It will be interesting to see whether the 2009 develops along the lines of the cooler vintage Rancias, or whether the juiciness of the fruit will ultimately prevail in the wine’s balance. Either way, the 2009 is yet another terrific Rancia from Felsina."
