Ricasoli Castello di Brolio Gran Selezione 2013Ricasoli
Sangiovese 90%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5%, Petit Verdot 5%
Deep ruby red color. The nose, unmistakable and elegant, expresses the complexity of floral aromas and ripe red fruit, liquorice, vanilla, and chocolate. The palate is full and rich with soft, velvety tannins. The finish is generously persistent. This blend offers the most authentic expression of the terroir of Brolio. The 2013 Sangiovese offers deep color and a remarkable structure; the Cabernet provides an impenetrable color with a surprising aromatic framework; and the Petit Verdot gives a velvety roundness.
