With this harvest, it was finally possible for the Sangiovese to express its maximum potential. Of an intense ruby colour with garnet tinges, it has a good aromatic complex bouquet. Chocolate/coffee and spices palate, it possesses an elegant tannin content and a lingering finish. Sangiovese with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Wine SpectatorShows amazing aromas of blackberry, with hints of vanilla and flowers, along with black licorice and crushed berries. Full-bodied, with wonderfully caressing, ultrafine tannins. Very balanced and long. Best after 2011. Highly Recommended.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Chianti Classico Brolio is a rich, weighty Chianti packed with dark fruit. The wine possesses good depth and volume in a ripe, fruit-driven style that is likely to provide its greatest drinking pleasure over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012.

Antonio Galloni, August 2009
