Barone Ricasoli : Brolio Riserva 2012SKU :J2068/12
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Barone Ricasoli's 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio is a delicious wine that delivers big surprises. This is the third vintage that this Riserva has been produced and the wine has been greeted with immediate market success. A special selection is made repressing the best fruit found throughout the Brolio vineyard holdings. This wine shows an enormous level of depth and personality, with good complexity at the back. The tannin management is excellent and the wine offers long, silky sensations in the mouth. The bouquet delivers wild berry fruit and lots of mineral graphite and pencil shaving that is characteristic of Chianti Classico wines.
