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 Castello di Brolio Vin Santo, true to tradition, expresses one of the “historic” grapes of the area, Malvasia del Chianti. Its production method also stays true to tradition. The grapes destined for Vin Santo are gathered late in the harvest, at the point at which the sugar content is high enough to sustain the long aging process that this wine undergoes. The bunches are hung and left to dry partially for several months. The must obtained from light crushing ferments slowly and is then placed in 225-litre half-barriques of oak.

TASTING NOTES
Brilliant Amber yellow colour. To the nose, hints of toasted hazelnuts and almonds blended with custard and figs. The taste is warm, soft and velvety. A pretty long and persistent aftertaste, enhance the olfactory sensations on the finish.
