Barone Ricasoli Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Enveloping aromas, typical of Mediterranean plants. Ripe red fruits and refined toasted and mineral notes. In the mouth - a myriad of flavours, rich and extremely elegant. The spicy notes and the toasting level of the wood used for ageing are in perfect harmony. This is the apex of the expression of the Brolio terroir. It is full of promise and will develop into complex aromas as it ages.

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

The 2007 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio offers up rich textured dark fruit in a succulent style that is very appealing. French oak gives the Castello di Brolio notable volume and body in addition to an attractive smokiness that works quite nicely in this vintage. The Castello di Brolio can be enjoyed today for its forward fruit or cellared for another decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
