With a heritage of over 900 years, the Ricasoli family estate continues to play a defining role in the prestigious Chianti Classico region.
Vin Santo Castello di Brolio, Chianti Classico DOC 2006
Vin Santo is a style of Italian dessert wine, produced by drying the freshly harvested grapes on straw mats in a warm and well ventilated area of the house. Castello di Brolio Vin Santo, under the sign of the tradition, interprets one of the “historic” grapes of the territory, Malvasia del Chianti. Luscious sweet with intense notes of raisins and sweet almonds.
In the late 18th century, Baron Bettino Ricasoli defined the basic “recipe” that still today is synonymous with a quality Chianti Classico. Guided by the current Baron Francesco, the estate continues to experiment and make improvements to an impressive range of quintessentially Tuscan wines that are popular with both critics and consumers across the world. Tasting wines from the family’s Brolio castle is to taste the very history of Chianti.
