Professional Wine Reviews for Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio 2013

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
Barone Ricasoli's 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio is a delicious wine that delivers big surprises. This is the third vintage that this Riserva has been produced and the wine has been greeted with immediate market success. A special selection is made repressing the best fruit found throughout the Brolio vineyard holdings. This wine shows an enormous level of depth and personality, with good complexity at the back. The tannin management is excellent and the wine offers long, silky sensations in the mouth. The bouquet delivers wild berry fruit and lots of mineral graphite and pencil shaving that is characteristic of Chianti Classico wines.

Winery Barone Ricasoli

Region: Tuscany

The beautiful region of Tuscany has been associated with wine production for almost three thousand years, and as such is one of the oldest and most highly respected wine producing regions in the world. The hot, sunny climate supports quite a wide range of grapes, but the grape varietals most widely grown across this large region are Sangiovese and Vernaccia, both of which are used in the production of Tuscany's most distinctive red and white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon and other imported grape varietals have also flourished there for over two hundred years, but it wasn't until the 1970's and the rise of the 'Super Tuscans' that they were widely used, when the fine wineries of the region began experimenting with Bordeaux style red wines to great effect.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
