Rated 91 Points Wine Advocate - "Unlike the estate’s other Chianti Classicos, the 2010 Chianti Classico Colledila is 100% Sangiovese from a single vineyard cru located 380 meters above sea level and characterized by veins of chalky and clay soil. It opens with a bright ruby color and buoyant aromas of forest fruit, wet earth and garden leaf. In fact, those delicate floral-herbal aromas are what ultimately distinguish this expression. Silky tannins give it firmness and lasting momentum. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."
"Colledilà" - the land which has been part of the Brolio estate for centuries - is the cru of this Chianti Classico DOCG that stands out due to its complex structure and great modern elegance. The research on original clones that has been carried out at Barone Ricasoli for the last fifteen years and the work on the specific characteristics of the various plots of land on the estate have now given rise to a single varietal Sangiovese which manifests the magnificent gifts of this grape variety. The limited volumes of the Colledilà cru render it all the more exclusive.
