🛒 Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico 🛒
Red Italian Wine
The history of the Ricasoli family has been linked to wine since 1141. In 1872 Bettino Ricasoli, illustrious politician, created the original Chianti recipe, today known as Chianti Classico. Castello di Brolio is created from a meticulous selection of the best Sangiovese and Abrusco grapes from the estate´s vineyards at 500 meters above sea level, facing south/south-west. Castello di Brolio is the flagship wine from Barone Ricasoli, produced only in the best years; its salient features are its concentration and tannic structure. These prized bottles, carefully aged in the cellars at Brolio Castle, offer extraordinary quality that conserves and increases in elegance and freshness even after many years of aging. "There´s lots of clove character here, but the fruit really shines through, offering up intense hibiscus, orange rind, cranberries, Thai basil and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and really structured and refined with an agile core of red berries and savory undertones. Long but minerally on the finish." - James Suckling Ideal with roast and braised veal, lamb and T-bone or ribeye steak. Vegan-friendly wine.
