Barone Ricasoli Chianti 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
