Ricasoli Brolio Chianti Classico 2018

The vineyards which produce the grapes for the Brolio label are planted in five geological
areas at an elevation between 280 meters to 480 meters (919 to 1, 575 feet high) and with
different exposures. Vineyard soils vary greatly but all are strewn with stony fragments adding
mineral richness. This exalts the structure of the Chianti Classico vintage.
PRODUCTION AREA
Estate Chianti Classico
GROWING SEASON
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. Thanks to good underground
water supplies, the plants never suffered water stress and ripened regularly. The quality of the
grapes was of a very high standard, which leads us to hope for a high quality wine.
TASTING NOTES
Bright ruby red color. The nose is all hints of small red fruits, irises and violets. In the mouth,
elegant, with velvety tannins well integrated with acidity. Persistent finish, expression of the
territory of Brolio.
