    "Brolio" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2017 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Brolio Riserva is quite classic in its composition, in its ageing, in its entire impression from the label to the last sip. Velvety, dense ruby, dense nose with rich fruit, especially blackberry and some elderberry. Supple on the palate, the course is polished with fine-grained tannin and a long-lasting finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Bright ruby red. In the nose of rose hips, pomegranate, wild strawberries and fine spice, inviting. On the palate clear, with present fruit, stretches juicily over the tongue, also salty, fills a wide arc, in the final long lasting and with emphasis." Falstaff

    "Packaged with a black label to show its Riserva status, this beautiful wine shows classic lines and good harmony. From a hot and dry vintage that threw many challenges at vintners across Tuscany, the Barone Ricasoli 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio reveals the expertise and know-how of the Ricasoli winemaking team. It opens to dark cherry and blackberry with earthy background aromas and plenty of smoke and crushed mineral. This is the kind of wine you'll want next to a wood-fired lasagna." Robert Parker

    "A fresh, firm 2017 with blackberry, blueberry and dark-chocolate character. It's medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Like the light bitter lemon at the finish." James Suckling

    "There is an inherent sweetness to this red, thanks to the ripe plum and black cherry fruit, with leather, tobacco and licorice notes playing supporting roles. This is solidly built, lingering nicely on the finish, where a saline element emerges." Wine Spectator

    "The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio is rich, expansive and super-expressive. Black cherry, spice, leather, espresso and a kick of Merlot richness all build in the glass. Creamy, open-knit and inviting, the 2017 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. It's one of the better recent editions I can recall." Vinous
