Description

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. The vineyards which produce the grapes for the Brolio label are planted in five geological areas at an elevation between 280 meters to 480 meters (919 to 1, 575 feet high) and with different exposures. Vineyard soils vary greatly but all are strewn with stony fragments adding mineral richness. This exalts the structure of the Chianti Classico vintage.

TASTING NOTES
Bright ruby red color. The nose is all hints of small red fruits, irises and violets. In the mouth, elegant, with velvety tannins well integrated with acidity. Persistent finish, expression of the territory of Brolio.

FOOD PAIRING

Tomato-based pasta sauces are fantastic, such as the Tuscan slow-simmered Ragù al Chingiale made with wild boar. Pizza is another favourite pairing
