The history of Chianti and that of the Ricasoli family has always intersected, so much so that the native grape used for this Chianti has been declared a Sangiovese Brolio clone. The Brolio castle has been owned by the family for a millennium. This Chianti Classico was harvested towards the end of September, a mild and sometimes rainy spring, a hot summer and a September with an accentuated temperature range. Mostly Sangiovese grapes from the Brolio clone were used. The maturation took place for 12 months in large second passage barrels and then arrived to us in splendid shape to express all the characteristics of traditional Tuscany.
