Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Intense ruby-red color. It shows a velvety palette of blackcurrant, black mulberry, tobacco and pepper aromas. A rich and potent taste in the mouth with smooth tannins, warm texture. Long mineral finish with pleasant fruit and mineral touches.

Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Chianti Classico Brolio is a gorgeous wine. In fact, it is one of the most delicious wines I have tasted from Ricasoli in a long time. Sweet dark cherries, licorice and tobacco burst from the glass in this big, hugely rewarding Chianti Classico. The purity and vibrancy of the fruit is striking. This is a terrific wine for the money."
90 Points

"Deep ruby-red. Red cherry and fresh herb aromas along with a pronounced smoky quality on the intense nose. Fresh on the palate, with red cherry, strawberry and herb flavors carrying through on the bright finish. Not the last word in complexity or length but very well made."

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
