Barone Ricasoli Brolio Chianti Classico 2019

Tuscany, ItalyBaron Francesco Ricasoli is the 32nd generation family member to live on these Tuscan lands, and caretake the ancient Brolio castle. Francesco is carrying on the dream and on with the vision that his ancestor first began 875 years ago. This Chianti Classico is off various parts of the estate's sandstone, galestro, alberese, clay and silt soils. It was fermented in stainless before 9 months in tonneaux. Tight and tart black cherry, early raspberries, worn wood run the silken, medium bodied palate, with bright, almost crunchy acidity met with long, lightly textural tannins through a snappy, warming finish. A lighter, friendlier style for your tomato sauced pastas now.Tasted: 20 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
