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.

This centuries-old expertise is evident in every bottle produced by this esteemed winery.

The Chardonnay 2020 is produced in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, at the historic Castello di Brolio. This castle, which has been the base of the Ricasoli family since 1141, offers an ideal environment for wine production. The Chardonnay grapes are carefully grown and harvested in this region, ensuring a wine that is as authentic as the land itself.

The result is a wine that continues the legacy of Barone Bettino Ricasoli, the Iron Baron, who in the 19th century developed the original formula for Chianti wine, laying the foundation for the modern Chianti Classico.

This Chardonnay is more than just a wine; it's a journey through the history and tradition of one of the world's oldest wineries. Whether you're a wine connoisseur or a casual enthusiast, this wine promises an experience that is both enriching and enjoyable.
