A proud Tuscan family since 1141, the Ricasolis head Italy's oldest wine company. On top of its ancestral know-how, the family also benefits from the advice of famed oenologist Carlo Ferrini. This Riserva blends Sangiovese (80%) with Merlot and Cabernet-Sauvignon. The 15-month ageing takes place in French oak casks and large Slavonian oak casks.
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"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.
Intense ruby red in colour 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."
