Bright and lively ruby. Enfolding and sweet aromas of cherry, morello cherry, violet and strawberry harmoniously blend with hints of tobacco, vanilla, white chocolate and Mediterranean spices. The mineral and spicy fruit tone of the Brolio terroir is unmistakable to the nose. An immediate freshness opens to warm, full and rich tactile sensations to the taste. Ripe red fruit and the spices join in a long embrace of finely toasted notes. Elegant, it promises an interesting evolution in the years.
Ricasoli Brolia Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico
Barone Ricasoli is the oldest winery in Italy, producing wine at the estate since 1141. The current owner, Barone Francesco Ricasoli, is the 32nd generation Baron of the family. Geremia and Ridolfo were the original Ricasolis, but it was in the year 1000 that the Ricasoli family was granted the highest degree of power over their feudal land, the title of “Barone” decreed directly from the King. This title signified full autonomy over their lands and those who inhabited them.
