Winemaker Notes

The 2006 vintage of this wine was ranked #5 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2009

With this harvest, it was finally possible for the Sangiovese to express its maximum potential. Intense ruby color with garnet tinges, it has a beautiful aromatic complex bouquet. Chocolate/coffee and spices palate, it possesses elegant tannin content and a lingering finish.

Chianti Classico is especially perfect as a compliment to meat-based main courses, such as porchetta allo spiedo, tripe, bistecca alla fiorentina, Colonnata lard, cold cuts and finocchiona di cinta senese. Chianti Classico also goes well with semi-mature Pecorino Toscano cheese, crostini alla toscana and fagioli al fiasco. The wine should be served at a temperature of 60-65°F.

Wine Enthusiast
Inky and raw, but in the best way. This is an unbridled, unchained monster of a Chianti, one with impeccable depth and extraction but also one that doesn’t sit on your palate like dead weight. Racy acids and firm tannins work in tandem to prop up the bulky dark fruit, creating a structured, delicious mass. Drink from 2007 through 2015.

A powerful and rich red, with blackberry, milk chocolate and cherry character. Full and soft. Best from 2011 through 2016.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio offers up rich, textured dark fruit in a succulent style that is very appealing. French oak gives the Castello di Brolio notable volume and body, in addition to an attractive smokiness that works quite nicely in this vintage. The Castello di Brolio can be enjoyed today for its forward fruit or cellared for another decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

Barone Ricasoli, Italy
Barone Ricasoli Brolio Castle Winery Image

The history of Italy cannot be told without including the prominent contributions of the Ricasoli family, who have produced wine since 1141.  Ricasoli is documented as the oldest winery in Italy and the fourth oldest family business in the world. A beautiful illustration of the family tree in 1584 is one of the first images of the Chianti area and the family archives include export receipts dating back to the late 1600s. However, perhaps the most famous historical contribution came from Baron Bettino Ricasoli, who was not only twice the prime minister of Italy, but after 30 years of experimentation and documentation, developed the original formula for the Chianti wine that became the standard for the region.

The heart of the Ricasoli wine production comes from the Brolio castello, a magnificent castle located in the commune of Gaiole in Chianti, which was built as an outpost to defend Florence from the rival city of Siena. Within the estate, ancient cannonballs and even more recent WWII artillery shells have been found, evidence of the historical strategic importance of the castle with views of the entire Chianti Classico area. The 3,000 acre estate includes 580 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards, ranging in altitude from 800 to 1,500 feet. Each plot is harvested and fermented separately with meticulous dedication.

Baron Francesco Ricasoli has been at the helm of the winery since 1993 and with the deepest respect for his renowned ancestors, he has guided the estate in innovation and sustainable vineyard practices. The ongoing study of soil types and the clonal selection of the Brolio Sangiovese are among his greatest passions and he has been responsible for total renovation and re-mapping of the vineyards. Today, the wines are a reflection of the family’s nine hundred year dedication to quality winemaking and innovation at the Brolio estate.
