Barone Ricasoli Chianti 2007
Wine Tasting Notes Typical, perfect expression of the Brolio terroir with its mineral nuance and intensity. Recalls mature fruits like black cherries and blackberries on the nose, with hints of chocolate. Full, round and structured on the palate, with toasty hints and sweet tannins. Lingering and very pleasant finish.

Rich aromas of ripe plum, berries, fresh herbs and mineral lead to a full-bodied palate, with plenty of fruit and well-integrated tannins. The finish is long and measured. Delicious. Drink now.
A great Tuscan value, and a strong vintage to boot, Brolio's 2001 Chianti Classico offers crisp, rustic flavors of black cherry, green olives, wet earth and truffles.
Castello di Brolio is created from a meticulous selection of the best Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the estate's vineyards, spread over 250 hectares of land. Grapes that have given their utmost are selected at Brolio, quality is always outstanding.
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 nic... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio 750ml
The 2001 Chianti Classico, one of the more successful efforts of the vintage, is dark in color, with tobacco, Mediterranean herb, and berry fruit characteristics. It is notably fuller, deeper, and longer than the standard wine of this appellation, almost too good for its category. Drink: now-2008.
OK, OK... So what if 1997 was the Tuscan "Vintage of the Century?" 1999 was almost as good (and in some cases better), and like many younger siblings, its successes were largely overshadowed by heroic exploits of big brother. This 1999 Brolio is a great Chianti and in addition to offering a wonderful value it also represents a chance for all you younger siblings out there to honor the quiet victories of that patient and perseverant second child who's best just never seems good enough (sniff).
This chianti possesses a rich, classic flavor with cherry aromas and a lot of oak and black-fruits.
