Area: Tuscany/ Toscana
Grape Varieties: Sangiovese 60%, Cabernet sauvignon 25%, Merlot 15%
Winemaking Notes: After racking, all three grapes are fermented in steel tanks for two weeks. Ageing takes place over 8-9 months in tonneaux of second and third passage.
Trappola feudal hamlet, defensive castle that belonged to the Ricasolis for many centuries, is today a wine that admirably expresses the Brolio character and territory.
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.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red color, ethereal with hints of ripe red fruit, spicy notes and tobacco. The taste is fresh, velvety and well balanced. The finish is long and persistent.
