Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Brolio 2006
Dark-colored, with a meat, berry and dark chocolate undertone. Full-bodied, with a silky texture and lots of fruit. Long and rich. Almost decadent. Drink now through 2012.
Here is 100% Sangiovese that reaches unbelievable extraction and thickness. The results are meaty and chewy with thick aromatic layers of plump cherries, chocolate, tobacco, moist earth and oaky spice. The mouthfeel is lively and vibrant with lingering tones of barbecue on the finish.
