Wine Advocate 90 points - Ricasoli’s 2007 Chianti Classico Brolio is a fairly straightforward offering made in a style that favors an expression of dark, jammy fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011. (Aug 2009)
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2007 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio offers up rich, textured dark fruit in a succulent style that is very appealing. French oak gives the Castello di Brolio notable volume and body, in addition to an attractive smokiness that works quite nicely in this vintage. The Castello di Brolio can be enjoyed today for its forward fruit or cellared for another decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.”,,, (Oct 2010)
Castello di Brolio embodies the characteristic refined elegance of the Brolio tradition and produced only during the very best vintages.
