Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Riserva Rocca Guicciarda 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red color. On the nose: characterized by intense balsamic notes, black pepper, roasted coffee, chocolate and fruit, predominantly black cherry. In the mouth: full-bodied and well-balanced, warmand smooth. Toasted notes with pleasing tannins that go well with the red berry flavour.

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

Very nice, but not the best I had. I was expecting more for the £16.49 I paid at Sainsbury's. In the end we enjoyed the Bouchard Aine
