Chianti del Barone DOCG Toscana Italia 2010

Member Review by Baffetto de Roma:

Our new arrival and privately imported, with a majority of Sangiovese grape. Ruby red in color, elegant nose of fruit, with shades of violet. A velvety palate and a nice balance. Goes beautifully with Penne all'arrabbiata.

For ten consecutive centuries, the property and the superior managment of Broliohad 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 varietals. 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 vvineyard according to ancient traditions and pursue the continuous role of producting 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 ssouthern 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
