Barone Ricasoli Sangiovese Blend Chianti 2001
The Castello di Brolio expresses the refined elegance that only the specific terroir of Brolio could produce. It is the "great wine" achieved by selecting the best grapes of Brolio, matured in barriques and with a long fining in the bottle that enhances its noble elegance. Castello di Brolio's production is closely connected to the evolution of the year's harvest.Therefore, it is only possible when the quality fully expresses itself, creating complex wines, with great style and texture.
External Reviews for Barone Ricasoli Sangiovese Blend Chianti
Fairly deep, dark and concentrated, with aromas of black plum, raw oak and mushroom. A pure and ripe Chianti; the flavors are full, emphasizing plum and black cherry. A touch of butter and wood graces the black-cherry finish. Tight and entirely dry.
Lots of smoky, ripe black fruit, with hints of mineral and oak. Medium-bodied, with medium tannins and nice fruit on the finish. Best after 2004.
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: nowndash;2008.
