Barone Ricasoli Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico 2007
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.
External Reviews for Barone Ricasoli Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico
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.
