Producer: Barone Ricasoli
Ricasoli is the most representative wine producer in the Chianti Classico area. With its gentle hills, velvety valleys and thick woodlands of oaks and chestnuts, the 1,200 hectares of property include almost 240 hectares of vineyards and 26 of olive groves.
This creates a continuous succession of colors and hues around the Brolio Castle, which is located within the town limits of Gaiole in Chianti. Since 1993, Baron Francesco Ricasoli has been guiding this central Tuscan company in innovative challenges. This has been done with the deepest respect for his renowned ancestors who have made this territory great, Bettino Ricasoli first and foremost.
Tasting Note: Intense ruby red. Fresh and ﬂoral bouquet with hints of violets followed by a generous fruit attack of blackberries, passion fruit, kola and sweet mint. Plush mouth feel, ripe red fruit and a spicy taste. Silky tannins and a well-balanced palate.
Food Suggestion: Pair this with classic Tuscan dishes such as wild boar ragu, grilled steak and stewed white beans.
