Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico is not just another chianti. It. Is. The. Chianti. This fact has been cemented in television history which we will discuss later.

Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico Red Wine is a complex and deep red wine blend containing sangiovese, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon red grape varieties. This red blend is characterized by cherry and red berry fruit notes with delicately spiced hints of tobacco, leather, cedar, white pepper, and a touch of flint. Featuring velvety tannins, firm acidity, and a lingering finish of rosemary, this chianti wine is well-balanced on the palate. It is made with a careful selection of the best grapes from the traditional Chianti Classico production region, and secondary malolactic fermentation enhances this wine's velvety texture. Riserva Ducale then ages for 24 months in oak, stainless steel, and concrete vats, then spends an additional three months in bottle before release. Pair a glass of this Italian red wine with favorites like prosciutto, mushroom risotto, or chicken cacciatore.

Promised pop culture reference: The wine was a staple on HBO's hit (pun) show, The Sopranos. It was a favorite of the show's protagonist, Tony Soprano, who would typically enjoy the wine with a bowl of pasta.
