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
"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."
The Wine Advocate
"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."
