Brolio Bettino Chianti Classico Docg

Distinctive traits: Harmonious, velvety, full bodied

This label is dedicated to Bettino Ricasoli who, in 1872, created the formula for the production of Chianti. President of the Council of united Italy in 1861 and 1866, he was also founder of the newspaper "La Nazione", experimenter in agriculture, and "father" of the first production rules (disciplinare) of Chianti wine. By producing this wine, we have tried to interpret his will, working on those elements that remind us the most of the style of his time.

Ageing18 months in big casks, followed by static decantation and a minimum of 3-months bottle ageing
Alcohol: 14%

Tasting notes

Ruby red colour. To the nose, scents of red ripe fruits and black cherries, but also spicy tones and balsamic notes. The taste is warm, elegant, savoury. Long lasting finish with a fruity aftertaste, which are the typical characteristics of the terroir of Brolio.
