Barone Ricasoli 007603 Ricasoli Rocca Guicciardo 05 Chianti Classico Reserve 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Always harmonious, this wine reveals lovely fruity aromas on the nose and a palate that displays all of its elegance in a wellbalanced profile and impressive length. It presents a concentrated ruby appearance with faint purplish highlights that with time and ageing will evolve into a deeper red color.

For ten consecutive centuries, the property and the superior management of Brolio had always been maintained by the Ricasoli family, except for a brief period at the beginning of the seventies until 1993, in which the business was managed by outside companies. In 1993, Francesco Ricasoli took over control of his family's business and embarked on his project of the complete renovation of the entire estate. Large investments were made to restore the land and its original grape varieties (that have been in the estate for centuries) as well as for the winemaking facilities and cellars. The 500 acres of vineyards, all of which are located around the castle, have been completely replanted with two objectives: to reconstruct the personality of each vineyard according to ancient traditions and pursue the continuous role of producing excellent wine, which began in the 19th century, while incorporating a modern element. Today, the company is comprised of more than 2,400 acres, northeast of Siena, one of the older more southern parts of the Chianti Classico region. Fifty acres of which are olive groves as well as a section of forest where chestnut wood is grown and used in the vineyards throughout the estate. Read less
