Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio Gran Selezione 2018
Vibrant black cherry and black currant flavors are the major themes in this red, shaded by earth, eucalyptus and resinous oak notes. A bit gruff on the finish now, but should come around nicely. Drink now through 2032.
The first historical documents regarding Castello di Brolio appeared as early as 1141, and since that time the Ricasoli family has played a crucial role in Tuscan winemaking, its name becoming the very symbol of Chianti Classico. The estate, with some 240 hectares of vineyard, is helmed today by Francesco Ricasoli.
