Production Area: Chianti Classico

Growing Season: Overall, we can state that 2018 was a complex harvest due to the climate trends, which tended to be more humid than average in the past, but with excellent summer temperatures and a very dry period in the months of September and October. Thanks to good underground water supplies, the plants never suffered water stress and ripened regularly.
The quality of the grapes was of a very high standard, which leads us to hope for a high-quality wine.

Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red in color with slight garnet reflections. To the nose, flavours of ripe red fruit, scents of cherries with delicate balsamic and vanilla notes. The palate is voluminous, sapid, with a great structure. The elegant tannin and the pleasant acidity give this wine a long and
enveloping finish.

 

Ricasoli is the most representative wine producer in the Chianti Classico area. With its gentle hills, velvety valleys and thick woodlands of oaks and chestnuts, the 1,200 hectares of property include almost 240 hectares of vineyards and 26 of olive groves.
