Ricasoli Winery

Ricasoli Winery, located in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region, is the epitome of Tuscan wine culture. Nestled among gentle hills, velvety valleys, and thick woodlands of oaks and chestnuts, the property spans an impressive 1,200 hectares, which includes nearly 240 hectares of vineyards and 26 of olive groves. This creates a breathtaking panorama around the Brolio Castle, located within the town limits of Gaiole in Chianti, and a constant succession of colors and hues that paint a picture of Tuscany's natural beauty. Since 1993, Baron Francesco Ricasoli has been at the helm of this central Tuscan company, guiding it through innovative challenges. His stewardship is characterized by a deep respect for his ancestors, notably Bettino Ricasoli, who have played significant roles in shaping this territory. Francesco Ricasoli’s leadership has seen the introduction of new ideas and concepts aimed at making the vineyards sustainable. He has embarked on an ongoing study of soil types and a clonal selection of the Brolio Sangiovese, demonstrating his passion and commitment to the vineyards. His efforts have led to the total renovation and comprehensive mapping of the vineyards. The new wines, therefore, are the embodiment of the research carried out with the same scientific rigor as his illustrious ancestor but with a contemporary spirit. Like a runner receiving the baton, Francesco Ricasoli carries it forward with renewed energy, ensuring that the Ricasoli Winery continues to offer wines that are a true expression of their terroir.

Ricasoli, Chianti Classico, 2020

This red wine hails from Ricasoli, one of the oldest and most respected wine estates globally, situated in the heart of the Chianti Classico region in Tuscany, Italy. With the Ricasoli family's history linked to winemaking since the 12th century, this winery stands as one of the oldest in the world and the oldest in Italy.

The wine has its roots at Castello di Brolio, a historic castle that has been a part of the Ricasoli family since 1141. The Iron Baron, Barone Bettino Ricasoli, played an essential role in establishing the estate's reputation. After years of experimentation in the 19th century, he developed the original formula for Chianti wine, which forms the basis for the modern Chianti Classico we relish today.

The wine is the result of a harmonious blend of Sangiovese grapes grown in the five most representative soils in Brolio. These include Macigno del Chianti (sandstone), Scaglia Toscana (Galestro), Monte Morello (Alberese), Marine Deposit (sandy deposits and clay at deeper levels), and Ancient Fluvial Terrace (silty deposits with clay). This blend gives the wine its unique characteristics.

This wine reveals an alcohol level of 14.5%, making it a robust choice for those who appreciate strong, full-bodied wines. Recognized and highly rated by renowned wine critics, this red wine has earned 93 points from Robert Parker, and 91 points from both James Suckling and Wine Spectator. With such high accolades, this wine stands as a testament to the quality and dedication of Ricasoli's winemaking process.

This wine is packaged in a 3 L bottle. Generally, larger bottles allow wine to age better.
