Chianti Classico Brolio, Barone Ricasoli, Tuscany, Italy, 2021
Grapes: 95% Sangiovese and 5% Colorino, fermentation in stainless steel, with 9 months' ageing in large, old oak barrels.
This wine, a blend of primarily Sangiovese grapes, is typical of the best modern day Chianti Classico, while displaying the elegance and intensity that made the wines of Chianti famous. Intense ruby red colour with fine nose of blackberries and blackcurrant notes, balsamic and spicy hints. The wine display excellent acid structure, well balanced, elegant tannins. The impact in the mouth is velvety and persistent.
"Showing an immediately light and bright personality, the 2021 Chianti Classico Brolio is an easy blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Colorino. It boasts an attractive, punchy approach with plenty of cherry, blue flower and pressed violet, followed by subtle mineral shadings. The wine is simple, but classic."
90/100 points, Monica Larner, WINE ADVOCATE, September 2023
