Barone Ricasoli Brolio Chianti Classico 2020

Tuscany, ItalyBrolio Chianti Classico 2020 is a 95/4 mix of sangiovese and colorino, grown in a warm year. Barone Francesco Ricasoli grows this wine over five of Brolio’s soil types: Macigno del Chianti (sandstone); Scaglia Toscana (Galestro); Monte Morello (Alberese); Marine Deposit (sandy deposits and clay at deeper levels); and Ancient Fluvial Terrace (silty deposits with clay). The complexity of the soil mix alone bodes well for a charming wine that is mouthfilling right out of the glass. Cherries with earthy, leather, and savoury menthol finishes medium long with perfect freshness. Castello di Brolio, founded in 1141, is one of the four oldest wine estates in the world.Tasted: 11 September 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
