    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red with garnet hues. The impact of the Riserva Ducale Oro 2006 is intense. At a first approach, notes of cherry, plum and violet appear very powerful; subsequently it denotes strong aromas of tobacco, chocolate, cinnamon and black pepper. On the whole, this wine shows a very complex and powerful nose.

    Full-bodied, very powerful in the fruity tastes, with tannins that are elegant and well linked to a good acidity. It is characterized by pleasant sensations of sweet tobacco. The finish is particularly long and shows powerful notes of plums and more light aromas of clove.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Licorice and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Balanced and pretty, with lovely finesse.

    Very dark ruby-red. Spiced blackcurrant, coffee and ink on the nose, with a light dusting of cracked black pepper. Shows good texture and very good sweetness to its dark fruit, coffee and licorice flavors. Finishes smooth and long, but with mounting tannins and bit of alcoholic warmth. A very-well made wine that deserves an outstanding score, but I miss the penetratingly pure quality and red fruit aromas and flavors of past great vintages of this wine, such as the 1988 and 1990.

    Has a little taste component that I can't put my finger on, but it makes this wine interesting. It was gone by day 2, though.
