Brolio has the distinction of being the most historic and most famous Barone Ricasoli wine. It has a full and complex structure, making it one of the greatest of Chianti Classico wines. Typical, perfect expression of the Brolio terroir with its mineral nuance and intensity. Recalls mature fruits like black cherries and blackberries on the nose, with hints of chocolate. Full, round and structured on the palate, with toasty hints and sweet tannins. Lingering and very pleasant finish.
Mostly Sangiovese with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Chianti Classico is especially perfect as a compliment to meat-based main courses, such as porchetta allo spiedo, tripe, bistecca alla fiorentina, and cold cuts.. It also goes well with semi-mature Pecorino Toscano cheese, crostini alla toscana and fagioli al fiasco.
