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, 2019

The estate has a rich heritage in wine production, tracing its roots back to the 12th century, marking it as one of the oldest wineries globally and the oldest in Italy.

The wine is crafted at the esteemed Castello di Brolio, a castle that has been in the Ricasoli family since 1141. The castle's previous inhabitant, Barone Bettino Ricasoli, also known as the Iron Baron, made significant contributions to the winery's reputation. Through years of meticulous experimentation, he formulated the original recipe for Chianti, which forms the foundation of the modern Chianti Classico we savor today.

This 2019 vintage is a testament to the winery's expertise and dedication to quality.
