Barone Ricasoli 'Castello di Brolio' Chianti Classico 2007
Wine Spectator 91 pts
A powerful and rich red, with blackberry, milk chocolate and cherry character. Full and soft. Best from 2011 through 2016.
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 - R. Parker's Wine Advocate
