Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red in color. Black nuts, vanilla and spices on the nose. Elegant and velvety tannins ensure a long, persistent and enveloping finish.

Casalferro was first produced in 1993 when Francesco Ricasoli became president of the company. A pure Merlot produced only during the best years, Casalferro is obtained from the vineyard of the same name located at 400 meters above sea level and facing south. The brown clay loam soil with little organic content contributes to the exclusive personality of this great Chianti Merlot.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling
Blackberries, blackcurrants, dark plums, Chinese spices and hints of vanilla. Full body, incredibly structured tannins, plenty of juicy blue fruit and a long finish. It's all so balanced and refined yet muscular. Better in 2020.
D 94
Decanter

Spicy oak with red fruit, blueberry and cherry aromas. The palate is gently smoky with fine tannin and a chalky minerality.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
This is pure and silky, boasting cherry, raspberry, peony and spice flavors. Intense and harmonious, picking up accents of chocolate, tobacco and mineral on the lingering finish. Merlot. Drink now through 2024.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A pure expression of Merlot, the 2015 Casalferro is a velvety and deeply enriched red wine. The magical forces of sunny Tuscany and exuberant Merlot are combined here to produce a wine of intensity and sweet softness. It caresses the palate, thanks to the softness and the succulent nature of its texture. The warm 2015 vintage also leaves its mark in terms of concentration and richness.

Barone Ricasoli, Italy
Image of winery

The House of Ricasoli has had an indelible impact on the history and quality of Chianti. According to Burton Anderson, "it is the world's oldest winery," having produced wines since 1141. Not only did an early Baron help create the appellation system, but in 1874, Baron Bettino Ricasoli (The "Iron Baron") developed the Sangiovese-based formula that came to be known as the official blend for Chianti.

After a few years of foreign ownership in the 60s and 70s, the Ricasoli winery is back in Italian hands -in fact, Francesco Ricasoli, the 32nd Baron of the original family, gained control in 1993. He has replanted several vineyards with improved clones, has improved the vinification technology, and has invested in new cooperage.

Barone Ricasoli is a commercial group that owns several estates throughout Tuscany. At its winery, it vinifies its own and other estates' wines, including those of Castello di Brolio. The Ricasoli family continues to show its commitment to quality and innovation. It was a leader of the Super Tuscan movement, with the production of its award-winning Casalferro. It produces a full range of Tuscan wines, ranging from Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG to the newest addition to the line, Formulae, a 100% Sangiovese aged in American oak casks.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
