      Francesco Ricasoli, sympathetic and ambitious owner of the Castello di Brolio, emphasizes elegance and finesse in his wines, as well as a wonderful depth of fruit.

      Rocca Guicciarda Riserva 2016 is a soft, silky wine from top vintage. Dark ruby. Rich bouquet of small red berries with a fine almond and tobacco note. It is a wine that is a pleasure to drink from an early age, but whose complexity of taste increases enormously as it matures. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Brolio Bettino" Chianti Classico DOCG 2016

      “Brolio Bettino” Chianti Classico DOCG 2016

      This small edition red wine, now vinified in the 3rd vintage, is dedicated to Bettino Ricasoli, who wrote down the grape variety mixture of today's Chianti as early as 1872. But he was much more than that: two times Prime Minister of the united Italy (1861 and 1866), founder of the daily newspaper "La Nazione", agricultural researcher and "father" of the first Chianti product specification. The creation of this wine interprets his untiring will to create an independent Chianti style that is both traditional and contemporary to this day.

      The unfiltered bottled Chianti Classico Brolio Bettino captivates with an intense ruby red. The intense and inviting scent of dark fruits is lined with noble balsamic notes. Flawless taste with well proportioned acidity and perfectly integrated tannin, powerful and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby red with a bright edge. In the nose fresh cherries and cranberries. Crunchy palate with balanced fruit-acid play, pithy in the middle with fine melting, very harmonious in the attack and course, high drinking fun! Falstaff

      "This is a terrific expression of Sangiovese with bright fruit, dense textural fiber and balanced acidity. The 2016 Chianti Classico Brolio Bettino plays all of its cards with an expert hand. It boasts impeccable balance, especially considering the relationship between its core of dark black fruit and the elegance and power of its long-lasting finish. Crushed stone notes appear as well."

    • Vin Santo del Chianti Classico DOC 2010

      Vin Santo del Chianti Classico DOC 2010

      Watch your step! Here comes breathtaking fruit intensity and precision from the dream vintage 2010! Bright golden yellow with amber reflections. In the bouquet facets dried apricot, tropical fruit, honey and candied orange peel. On the palate creamy, complex and with fine minerality - and due to well-dosed sweetness almost juicy! SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2010 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio has a bright orange color, reminiscent of honey and baltic amber. This is an epic rendition of one of the most beautifully made dessert wines to emerge from Italy. This Vin Santo pours from the bottle with bright intensity and golden highlights. The bouquet offers multiple layers of dried apricot, toasted almond, dried rose, caramel and honeysuckle. In the mouth, this wine is viscous and rich with a thick glycerin content that wraps over the palate. I have had the good fortune of tasting back vintages of this wine all the way back to 1923 and I can vouch for its impressive aging range and enormously long drinking window." Robert Parker

      “Castello di Brolio” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2015

      Castello di Brolio - a Super-Chianti Classico of the highest quality Gran Selezione and next to the Colledilà the second flagship of Barone Ricasoli. It comes from the vineyard of the same name, which has been the summer residence of the Ricasoli family since 1141. Powerful ruby, in the fragrance cherries, plums, some tobacco. On the palate it has a mature fruity note, racy, structured, long and full of finesse. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, rich ruby with a slight garnet shimmer. Very open and accessible nose, smells seductively of ripe cherries, some cloves and blueberries. Round and smooth in the base and course, a very soft and round Chianti, fine-meshed tannin, a lot of sweet enamel." Falstaff

      "Floral, cherry and bell pepper nose and taste, fine tannins, then a very long finish and gentle oaky aftertaste." Decanter

      "Sweet, ripe cherry and raspberry flavors define this Chianti Classico from start to finish, augmented by almond, iron and tar accents, with a hefty dose of grainy tannins. All the elements come together on the juicy aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio takes a few minutes to open and settle in the glass. The bouquet here is redolent of pressed cherry and dried blackberry with underbrush, dark spice, forest floor and even a touch of wild porcino mushroom. The mouthfeel is smooth and loosely textured, which gives the wine an accessible and immediate personality. These vineyard sites in Gaiole in Chianti are characterized by crushed alberese rock soils. These unique growing conditions always add to the focus and the sharpness of the aromas." Robert Parker

      "A fresh and linear Gran Selezione Chianti Classico with firm and chewy tannins and dark fruits. Full body. Structured. Give it two or three years to come together." James Suckling

Wonderfully integrated notes of cedar wood, tobacco and leather lend the dense fruit complexity and the pleasant acid reader of Sangiovese provides the necessary freshness.

      "From a single parcel of vines planted on soils rich with alberese stones, the 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colledilà is a beautiful expression of 100% Sangiovese that offers a very genuine interpretation of this warm and sunny vintage. You absolutely taste the ripeness of the fruit at hand with dark cherry and blackberry flavors followed by tar, licorice and potting soil. These earthy aromas transport your mind and soul to the thickly forested Gaiole in Chianti area." Robert Parker

      Brolio Riserva is very classic in its composition, in its ageing, in its overall appearance from the label to the last sip. Velvety, dense ruby, dense nose with rich fruit, especially blackberry and some elderberry. In the taste smooth, the course polished with fine-grained tannin and long-lasting reverberation. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mid ruby. Slightly stalky and a little reductive on the nose. Plenty of concentrated sweet-tangy cherry fruit and grainy tannins. Great balance." Jancis Robinson

      "The oldest winery in Italy, Castello di Brolio is managed by 32nd-generation Francesco Ricasoli. Of the 2016 vintage, he states that it was the first time in 10 years that the phenolic and sugar ripeness was perfectly in sync. Seductive notes of undergrowth evoke this forested region and are complemented by rooibos tea, red currants and tarragon. Fine-grained tannins brace the palate of this immediately drinkable, satisfying wine." Decanter

      "This is a fantastic Chianti Classico Riserva that displays blackcurrants, dark plums, redder plums, tulips and cedar. Medium to full body, some really restrained and attractive tannins and a tangy finish." James Suckling

      "An expression of fresh cherry greets the nose in this taut red, yet this remains austere on the palate, with fruit, iron, earth and oak spice flavors bound up in a grip of tannins. Everything is in the right place, but this needs time." Wine Spectator

      "From a single parcel of vines planted on soils rich with alberese stones, the 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colledilà is a beautiful expression of 100% Sangiovese that offers a very genuine interpretation of this warm and sunny vintage. You absolutely taste the ripeness of the fruit at hand with dark cherry and blackberry flavors followed by tar, licorice and potting soil. These earthy aromas transport your mind and soul to the thickly forested Gaiole in Chianti area." Robert Parker

      "This is fantastic Gran Selezione with such finesse and beauty. Medium body, delicate tannins and a juicy finish. Love the plum and cedar character. So subtle and polished." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Barone Ricasoli | Brolio
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Barone Ricasoli | Brolio

    The Castello di Brolio family estate sits peacefully on a picturesque hill in the Chianti mountains, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypresses. Baron Bettino Ricasoli first determined in the late 1860s which grape varieties a Chianti could contain at this magnificent location in the municipality of Gaiole. Inspired by the French wine philosophy, Castello di Brolio, one of the oldest wineries in the world, has launched three particularly fine wines on the market.

    The main wine of the house - Chianti Classico "Castello di Brolio" - is made mainly from Sangiovese and aged in barriques for 18 months. Other premium wines include pure Merlot "Casalferro" and the new Chianti Classico "colledilà"vinified from 100% Sangiovese from a single vineyard of the same name, which has been vinified since the 2011 vintage, as well as the "Castello di Brolio" the highest quality level "Gran Selezione" climbed. The noble drops are the result of a development that began in 1993: At that time Francesco Barone Ricasoli had taken over the vineyard. He immediately launched an ambitious quality offensive: New vineyards were planted and a scientifically based programme of selection and reproduction of the best old Sangiovese clones was initiated. The youngest offspring of the famous noble family also analysed the individual vineyards - a total of around 250 hectares of vineyards on 1,200 hectares of land - in order to better understand the characteristics of the vineyards and the influence of the soil on the wine and to be able to avoid mistakes on the way from the grape to the bottle.

    In 1997 Ricasoli succeeded in breaking the supertoscan domination in Italy. Chief oenologist Carlo Ferrini, who knows Chianti and its wines very well, played a large part in the qualitative high flight of the Castello di Brolio. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The history of the Ricasoli estate is inextricably linked to that of Chianti Classico. Even today, the winery is regarded as a model of the wine growing region.“Gambero Rosso
