Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Brolio 2013
Wine AdvocateHere is Barone Ricasoli's bread and butter wine. Some 600,000 bottles of the 2013 Chianti Classico Brolio were made and all the fruit that goes into this wine is estate-grown. This is a powerhouse wine in terms of production numbers and the 2013 vintage is an especially delicious one. I highly recommend this excellent value wine. The wine shows crunchy tannins and youthful fruit nuances with bright cherry and blackberry. The mouthfeel is generous and fresh.
Wine EnthusiastFresh aromas of red berry, violet and aromatic herb lead the nose of this blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and 5%, Cabernet Sauvignon. The vibrant palate delivers wild cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and a hint of coffee alongside bright acidity and silky tannins. Drink through 2017.
Wine SpectatorA lean, chewy style, offering black cherry and black currant fruit, accented by tobacco, spice and earth notes. Austere on its own, but food will help. Best from 2017 through 2022. 50,000 cases made.
