Today it is the largest winery in the Chianti Classico area: Brolio Castle, where Baron Bettino Ricasoli invented the Chianti formula in 1872, is surrounded by 1,200 hectares in the communes of Gaiole and Castelnuovo Berardenga. Valleys, hills, woods of oak and chestnut trees, 235 hectares of vineyards and 26 hectares of olive groves, all enjoying the beauty and the wide variety of soils and climate in this central Chianti area.
Brolio successfully matches the superior drinkability that defines Chianti Classico in its young version with a full, complex structure, which makes this wine excellent in its category.
The company's vines, which rise from 280 to 480 meters above sea level, produce the grapes for the Brolio harvest. The lands vary much from one another, while sharing a gravelly composition
Intense ruby red. Fresh and floral bouquet with hints of quinine, violets and mimosa, followed by generous fruit sensations of blackberries, passion fruit kola and sweet mint leaves. Plush mouth feel, ripe red fruit and spicy taste. Silky tannins and well balanced palate.
Variety: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
