BARONE RICASOLI

Francesco Ricasoli presides over one of Chianti Classico’s most successful wineries during what is one of the most exciting moments in its long history. The blending formula for making wines in the Chianti area was invented by Baron Bettino Ricasoli and the beautifully imposing Castello di Brolio is an architectural symbol of the entire Chianti Classico region.

TASTING REVIEWS & SCORES

Monica Larner Wine Advocate, October 2015, (92-94) Points

Tasted from vat, the 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio is shaping up to be a stunning wine, and may be one of the best expressions this single vineyard has produced so far in its young incarnation as a Gran Selezione wine.

Previous vintages see some small additions of international grapes, but this vintage was made without Merlot in the blend.

The wine is brimming with bright fruit intensity and enormous generosity. The finish is luscious, rich and long-lasting. It promises to flesh out further with more bottle aging.
