Ricasoli Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG
Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG, Tuscany
Castello di Brolio is our flagship wine created from a meticulous selection of estate-grown grapes from the three most representative soils that surround the castle itself: Macigno del Chianti (sandstone), Scaglia Toscana (Galestro), Monte Morello (Alberese).
Intense ruby red color with aromas of red fruit and plum along with hints of balsam and vanilla. Firm but elegant with sweet tannins, balanced acidity, and a persistence in the finish.
Overall, we can state that 2018 was a complex harvest due to the climate trends, which tended to be more humid than average in the past, but with excellent summer temperatures and a very dry period in the months of September and October.
Fermentation and maceration in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 75.2°-80.6°F with 14-16 days of skin contact.
