    "Roncicone" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

    As a result of extensive soil research, Francesco Ricasoli was able to identify three micro-layers that will be vinified separately from the 2015 vintage onwards. As a result, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione range now includes the famous Castello di Brolio as well as three Cru vineyards (Colledilà, Roncicone and Ceniprimo), all of which are 100% stocked with Sangiovese. They differ in structure and taste in close correspondence with their terroir and impressively demonstrate the complexity of the Chanti Classico region.

    The new Cru Roncicone comes from soils with maritime deposits. It is a 10.1 hectare plot that was planted between 1998 and 2000 with a density of 6,000 plants per hectare. The soils are rich in marine fossils with sand at the top and thicker clay under the topsoil. Our impression of this wine is that it is most immediately and softly structured.

    Roncicone has a deep dark, fruity smoky bouquet. On the palate dark violet fruits, paired with notes of forest soil, tobacco and a nice spice. The volume is full and deep, the tannins very accessible even at a young age and the finish is flanked by a well-structured acid structure, which will also provide a very good aging potential.

    "It comes from a single vineyard at 320 metres above sea level, with a wonderful aroma of wild berries and herbs; the start is fresh and juicy, the acidity reviving and in perfect harmony with the tannins, full of elegance in the style of a Burgundy until the end." Vinum

    "Here is a new exciting wine from Francesco Ricasoli that represents the hands-on results of a long zoning and research project underway at this estate to better understand the potential of each single vineyard within the greater Castello di Brolio property. The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio Roncicone is a soft and velvety expression with a long bouquet of dark and purple fruit, tilled earth, spice and tobacco. The wine offers volume, grit and a more accessible or sweet tannin. This is a great steak wine made from 100% Sangiovese that was aged in 500-liter tonneaux. Some 6,000 bottles were made. This vineyard site is rich in marine fossils." Robert Parker

    "I love the purity of fruit to this Gran Selezione that shows hibiscus, orange peel, violets, lavender, early grey tea, cloves, tobacco and wet earth. Elegant and flowing with lithe yet structured tannins, intensely refreshing acidity and a long, complex finish. Superb sangiovese." James Suckling
