Nice legs, dark ruby with bit of orange edge. Full of red fruits, earthiness like tea, tobacco, really nice melted down tannins. Loved with Italian lasagna and alfredo futtuchini. Very good. Drink now.

Very oaked noise, not much fruit, might be corked.

Better than the plain Riserva, and better on the 2nd day. Which went great with Julia Child's boeuf bourguignon that also tastes better on day 2. Funny how that works out. It may also be that this Oro had an extra 2 years.

As far as a Chianti goes... I can't think of anything better!
