Ricasoli Casalferro 2013

100% Merlot

The 2013 Casalferro comes from a 20-hectare Merlot vineyard on the Brolio property. This is a delicious expression that shows no signs of over-ripeness. In fact, the wine achieves great balance with luscious fruit, wild berry, grilled herb, spice and soft cherry. In addition to the varietal pureness of the wine. It has taken on the freshness and the crisp mineral definition that characterizes the wines of the Chianti Classico zone. This single varietal Merlot stands out for its mineral and spicy notes that precede the black and red berries. Young, rich, and powerful. A wine able to defy time

The brown clay loam soil with little organic content contributes to the exclusive personality of this great Chianti Merlot.
