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

Lots of black truffles and berries on the nose and palate. Yet, supple and refined. Full, silky and delicious. Like the acidity in this. Very classy wine. A pure Sangiovese from a top single vineyard. Drink now. James Suckling. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2008 Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Colledila 750ml

Medium garnet hue with brick edges. The spicy bouquet of sandalwood fennel seed and mildly toasted cedar is reminiscent of Right Bank Bordeaux. The palate expresses dried morello cherry fig and ripe Santa Rosa plum. Subtle licorice and cola linger on the long dry finish. The tannins are still firm but fine-grained creating an elegant edge on the back end. This is expressive enough to enjoy now but the wood and fruit tannins will enable it to age another 2 to 4 years. The perfect wine for Tuscan and Bordeaux enthusiasts alike. Neil Mechanic.
