Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione (DOCG), $34.99-$39.99, 93 points, poured nearly black grading an opaque purple/red with a clear wine ring and glass bowl of moderate legs.
The cedar cinnamon-spiced cherry fruit potpourri nose was outstanding.
Medium-plus body with bright acidity and firm grainy tannins delivered excellent flavors reflective of the aromas with violets, oak, and mint.
Finished long on the trailing palate, pomegranate, black tea, and an intense infused 14.5% alcohol pepper-spice.
