Tasting Notes
Bright ruby red colour. Rich, elegant, tender and spicy on entry then the red fruit notes gain and invade the nose. Thanks to a long and accurate selection at the winery, the wine and wood are fully integrated to express its distinctive character. Red fruit and pepper on the palate that reveals the mineral style of Chianti Classico.
Ratings
Rated 92 Points Wine Spectator - "A modern style, yet beautiful in its execution. Black cherry and blackberry flavors are pure and tinged with violet, toast and oak spice notes. A beam of acidity keeps this fresh, lingering with a spice, berry and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2020. 1,000 cases imported. –BS"
Awards
Rated 92 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2008 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio reveals gorgeous layers of wild cherries, tobacco, herbs, spices and new leather. Darker, balsamic notes develop in the glass, contributing weight and dimension. The Castello di Brolio shows gorgeous delineation and a long polished finish peppered with hints of smoke, tar and incense. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."
Production Notes
Castello di Brolio is created from a meticulous selection of the best Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the estate's vineyards, spread over 230 hectares of land. Only grapes that have given their utmost are selected at Brolio - the production of each vintage may thus vary in quantity, but quality is always outstanding. The vineyards are at 250 to 450 m above sea level, facing south/south-west. The perfect exposure and excellent elevation of the land as well as the very stony soil are responsible for the typicality of this wine.
