Marks and reviews
The Ricasoli family, which traces its origins back to the 7th century, is one of the oldest Italian families. Barone Ricasoli is the oldest wine estate in Italy, following the acquisition in 1141 of Château Brolio by the Ricasoli family. Aware of the significant potential of this estate, the Ricasoli family therefore undertook major work to restructure the vineyards and modernise viticultural practices, with the ambition of producing great wines from this Brolio terroir.
The wines from this Tuscan estate were then exported internationally and recognised for their quality, particularly in 1867 when Brolio wine won the first gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. After years of research and experimentation, Bettino Ricasoli created in 1872 the "formula" for the production of Chianti, now called Chianti Classico.
Barone Ricasoli's Castello di Brolio Gran Selezione 2019 is a Tuscan wine from a 26-hectare vineyard placed between 400 and 490 metres above sea level in Chianti Classico. Its varied terroir and privileged geographical location, ranging from Alberese sandstone to Galestro limestone, allow the vines to flourish in a beneficial microclimate. These blessed soils give birth to wines of extraordinary tannic structure and aromatic richness.
Winemaking and ageing
Fermentation and maceration in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats (24-27°C) for 14 to 16 days. This Chianti Classico wine is aged for 23 months in barrels (30% new and 70% single-vineyard).
The wine has an intense ruby colour.
The nose mingles scents of ripe red fruit and notes of spices, tobacco and leather.
The palate reveals pronounced tannis, a lovely balance and an intense acidic framework, followed by a lingering finish.
For the best tasting, this wine should be served between 16 and 18°C.
Food and wine pairing
Castello di Brolio Gran Selezione 2019 from Barone Ricasoli pairs perfectly with red meat dishes, such as osso buco, sirloin steak or mature cheeses.
This Italian wine can be laid down until 2039.
